Half the size but fully featured - including a DAB radio and network streaming - the Pioneer VSXS520D is the do-it-all AV receiver for tight spaces.

Slimline design

With a height of just 70mm the Pioneer VSX-S520D is just half the height of typical AV receivers. This means that it fits where others simply won't go and, crucially, has room to keep cool. It also happens to be one of the cleanest and sleekest looking AV receivers on the market. A clear display is flanked by just a handful of controls for a minimalist style.

Punchy performer
Despite its compact size, the VSXS520D compromises little when it comes to power. 80 watts per channel (at 4 ohms) gives plenty of power for all but the largest rooms. The power comes from a Class D amplifier that's not only powerful but cool running, too, making it ideal for this compact Pioneer. A further, unusual, benefit with this AV receiver is the powered subwoofer output. This lets you use a passive subwoofer although an active one can also be connected by the usual RCA sub output.

Google Cast, AirPlay and Bluetooth
It's easy to stream music from your smartphone and tablet with Googlecast and AirPlay onboard. Link up wirelessly and stream your stored music or favourite music services using Google (Android) or iTunes (Apple) operating systems. For universal compatibility, including many laptops and PCs, Bluetooth wireless music streaming is also available.

Wi-Fi, Tidal, Spotify and Internet radio for the complete networking experience
The VSXS520D also comes with Wi-Fi, Internet radio, Tidal and Spotify. Simply connect to your home network using an Ethernet connection or Wi-Fi and you can access thousands of Internet radio sites via tunein as well as subscription services such as Spotify Connect and Tidal.

Add a wireless speaker with FireConnect powered by Blackfire
Using the latest FireConnect by Blackfire technology it's possible to create a multi-room speaker system - wirelessly! Simply add compatible Pioneer wireless speakers and you can mirror what's playing on the main system in another room.

DAB radio
Uniquely amongst AV receivers of its class, the Pioneer VSXS520D comes with a built-in DAB digital radio. This gives access to a wide range of stations and the benefit of hiss-free, digital radio. In addition to the DAB radio there's also an FM tuner for access to local and national stations via the analogue radio network.

Spin your vinyl
If all this connectivity weren't enough, the VSX-S520D still works great as a hi-fi amp. Two line inputs and two digital connections are ample for most home entertainment systems. You can even plug in your turntable, thanks to the dedicated phono (MM) input - making a total of five inputs.

Easy set-up
Despite packing a lot of tech in, the VSXS520D is easy to set-up and use. Pioneer's unique MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system tunes the amplifier to the size of listening room and speaker placement, at the touch of a button. Phase Control technology means a cohesive sound between the speakers, wherever you choose to place them in the room.

Streamline the style and not the performance, with the Pioneer VSXS520D.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, great sound. This Amp is really excellent, best sound for my medium size room, also fits nicely in the narrow space I had available. It's easy to set up and I'm very happy with my purchase, and delivered the next day. All good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Receiver & Much More A really great buy that works really well to produce a substantial output especially if you download the iControlAV5 app from pioneer. With the added benefit of DAB radio and for me the ability to link up with my Onkyo speakers around the house and garden it was just what I was looking for using the Play-Fi app I can now stream my music, Spotify, etc. through the AV system and each/all of my other speakers perfectly synchronised :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works a treat! This has just the range of features I need and a very good balance between excellent performance and a realistic price point. Very satisfied thus far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good features and easy to use Replaced an Onkyo device which had gradually stopped working over several years. Same company but this seems to be a step up technology-wise. Also the slim design makes everything less cluttered - don’t actually need 7.1 nor multi-room so seems perfect. Only complaint is lack of a manual - it’s a pain having to use a semi-functional online pdf - makes it difficult to try out the different sound options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits my requirements perfectly I needed a Phono input and powered sub-woofer output. The problem was, the Onkyo TXL50 I chose was temporarily out of stock so I went up the price range to the Pioneer which is almost identical and gained a DAB+ tuner. Pioneer and Onkyo belong to the same corporation so please look at the TLX50 for more ratings. My only gripe... The receiver IS compact and the speaker connectors are small. I had to trim down all my nice fat speaker leads to get them to fit.
