CONTROL THE POWER OF SOUND


Pioneer designed the VSX-531 AV receiver to deliver powerful cutting edge features at an entry-level price point. The VSX-531 is equipped with a 5 channel discrete amplifier with the same quality on all 5.1-channels delivering up to 140 Watts (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 1.0 %, 1ch Driven) of power per channel of clear audio reproduction.

 

EMBELLISH LOW-FREQUENCY AMBIENCE


The VSX-531 creates a dynamic, lively, and realistic ambience derived from the original sources, expressing the audio details as the artist intended. Most typical AV receivers use a Low Pass Filter to process low-frequency signals for the subwoofer when amplifying multi-channel audio signals causing low frequency “phase lag” from the main channels. The Pioneer Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag, enriching the booming power of deep, low frequency audio, while maintaining the original’s subtle nuances.

 

4K UltraHD COMPATIBLE


The VSX-531 supports 4K/60p/4:4:4 24-bit video signal transmission using HDCP 2.2 technology, ensuring you always have access to the many upcoming 4K UltraHD sources and televisions with HDR. Ready for the next upgrade to your visual experience, Pioneer engineered the VSX-531 receiver to be compatible with the latest standards.

 

HD AUDIO UNCOMPRESSED


Expand your audio library with the ultimate in sound reproduction using high-definition audio formats with Dolby® TrueHD® and DTS-HD® to deliver Blu-ray Disc soundtracks with unsurpassed audio quality. The VSX-531 also supports Dolby and DTS surround formats, the best formats for the wide variety of available entertainment sources.

 

ADVANCED SOUND, ENHANCED DETAIL


The VSX-531 incorporates Pioneer’s Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) to improve the dynamic response from compressed music sources and restore the subtle details left out during the compression process. Ideal for use with WMA, AAC and MP3 files played via disc or USB, ASR makes music sound more realistic than before for enhanced playback that sounds as close to the original recording.

 

BLUETOOTH® BUILT-IN


Easily enjoy music from other devices with the built-in Bluetooth Wireless Technology, the most convenient wireless streaming solution. Pair the VSX-531 with compatible devices and wirelessly listen to all of your favorite streaming music services as well as your own music library, for access to your favorite music genres!
