Pioneer vsx-531-k

Just purchased this item about 2weeks ago. Easy set up. Provides great sound on my surround system. Played a Bruce Springsteen DVD and it was awesome. Really enjoying it. Good value for a lower end receiver. Only issue I have is when I turn on the system it reverts to tv and I have to set it back to cable/satellite via remote. I'm sure I can get this resolved but haven't really tried yet. I would rate it 4 star and maybe highr if I had used it a little longer.

amazing quality

gave this as a birthday gift for my dad and he loves it. sound quality is clear and it doesn't get distorted even when you put it in high volume. my dad uses it for karaoke and he loves how his voice comes out perfectly on the speakers. its also user friendly and easy to setup. some rca capable device might come out black and white because of compatibility issues but we bought a rca to hdmi converter and it worked good after that.

Can't go wrong with Pioneer

Amazing sound and features for entry level receiver. Perfect upgrade for my HDMI devices to connect to one output to the TV which is why I got it. The new surround features are just a bonus.

  • from Borbely

Very satisfied!

Totally satisfied with this product, I find it very powerful with strong surround sound and I like the manual speakers set-up I found it enjoying. The sound is very crisp and clear better then my old harmon kardon if set up properly.
