The Pioneer VSX-531 AV receiver is the ideal centerpiece for elevating your home theater system to a richer, more authentic audio experience. As a starting gateway into the immersive world of High Definition surround sound, the Pioneer VSX-531 features 4 HDMI inputs and Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) pass-through with HDCP 2.2, easily handling the latest technology and devices, with standard support for all of the latest HDR video standards for vivid high-resolution playback.

Enhance your listening experience with audio streaming from your mobile devices using the built-in Bluetooth® Wireless Technology, or with Pioneer’s signature Phase Control technology for synchronized sound, delivering a realistic and dynamic performance made for your room.


Pioneer designed the Pioneer VSX-531 AV receiver to deliver powerful cutting edge features at an entry-level price point. The Pioneer 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.


The Pioneer 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.


The Pioneer 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.


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 Pioneer VSX-531 also supports Dolby and DTS surround formats, the best formats for the wide variety of available entertainment sources.

The Pioneer 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.
