Pioneer VSX-531 review

 

Pioneer goes back to basics with this entry-level AV amplifier

Fast, articulate sound ; Agile and expressive ; Good scale and size ; HDMI inputs support 4K passthrough ; Bluetooth

Some spring-loaded terminals ; Treble lacks substance ; Rivals have more sonic solidity ; No network features

A fast and articulate albeit scarcely featured entry-level amplifier

Excellent sound quality

 

Easy to operate, good sound quality. The remote control is well laid out with the buttons well spaced apart. A good all round unit.

Does the job really well.

 

I bought this a few weeks ago to replace a Marantz amp that was pretty useless. It was easy to install and link everything up. Sound is good.

Excellent budget choice.

 

Works well and produces an excellent sound. The first one failed with Bluetooth error. Richer Sounds replaced within 24hrs. First class response from this company.

great sound

 

My 1st amp(at 68) very impressed with the sound, mostly the clarity of the voices. My wife and I have spent a fortune on sound bars and TV's over the last 10 years and have struggled to hear because the talking is drown out by all the backing noise.

Chose this for its good reviews and good price!

 

Got a good deal at Richer Sounds and I am very happy with my purchase.

Consumer review (richersounds.com)

Decent entry level but with avoidable flaw ...

 

This has all the facilities you are likely to need unless you are a real HiFi buff ... The automated speaker set-up is fast and efficient and clearly improves the sound and, with the possible exception of no WiFi, it has all you are ever likely to...
