Pioneer VSX-531-B 5.1AV receiver at Amazon for £169
404°Expired
Found 6th JanFound 6th Jan
Great value entry-level receiver. Available for the same price at RIcher Sounds.
I bought this last May from amazon for this price. Works very well, no problems at all. Set up was very easy with the auto setup, it did good job and found I didn't have to adjust it when I tested it with movies.

Although I don;t have a 4K tv yet I bought this as it does 4K HDR pass through which I couldn't find on any others sub £200 including those from sister company Onkyo. As my current plasma only has 2 HDMI ports I have my blu ray, Sky box and fire stick plugged into it with the Sky box set up for audio pass through for use through the tv when the unit ison standby.

Sound is good, although my surround speakers are are not the best (the other half wouldn't accept any better AV speakers as well as the floor standing Hi Fi ones for the stereo only separates in the living room) and is clear and well placed. For the money and features, this is NOT missing any at its full price point. Only things missing for me would be ATMOS which nothing sub £300 will have and front AV inputs which I didn't want or WiFI which I wasn't bothered about.

Good unit don't think at this price it can be beaten
umm this or a Yamaha YZF-R1M

The picture would come on fine but then no sound. Used to do factory reset which sometimes helped. Used to switch from PS3 to FireTV then back and that would sometimes work. I got that fed up and there were no solutions I bought another AV Receiver.I've got the Yamaha RXV583 and it's been faultless and 4K works fine.


It is not just me being useless at setting it up then.

Nice equipment when it works but when you have to keep on resetting it and then for no reason sound goes, picture goes or the TV speakers are only available instead of the expensive speaker set up it becomes very frustrating.

This is a good price, and shows how heavily inflated retail shops are!!

We’ve just had a boy and in the run up to his arrival we narrowed our choice down to the Pioneer or Uppababy Vista which came strongly recommended by a friend.

Having visited John Lewis who stock both models, we did a ‘test drive’ and found the Uppababy much more user friendly in terms of ‘driveability’ and flexibility (ability to put it down etc...)...

We plumped for the Vista and paid £700 with a car seat. But we noticed on Black Friday the Vista dropped to £499. A quick search shows you can pick it up for £485...

In short, I’d consider the Uppababy if interested in the Pioneer.

looking for something for the shed, cracking price.
Bought it for my lad for Christmas.
And after years of listening to high end separates I Must say I was totally surprised how good the
little pioneer sounded whilst the power will never blow you away it would be ideal for a kitchen/ or home office
add the fact you also have a usb port and the pioneer at £49.99 becomes a bargain.

As with a lot of this stuff, speaker placement is important. Many people get this all wrong, on 5.1 they talk about "rear" speakers, which they have never been - they are surround speakers. They should be located more to the sides than behind you.

A lot of people get this wrong, and put the surround speakers behind the sofa on a stand or mounted on the wall. With some sources, the noise coming down your ear from behind the sofa can be a bit annoying unless you're sat in the best seat.

With Atmos, it's a whole different dimension so they added a new point - hence 5.1.2 indicating 2 vertical channels. Instead of audio only coming from your surround speakers, it also comes from above. In much the same way as left/right stereo speakers allow an object to pan across from one side to another, with Atmos you can move it between the surround speaker and the height speaker above it.

On stereo front L/R channels you don't usually hear sounds coming from one speaker or another but projected somewhere in-between. Likewise with Atmos, it won't come from the speaker to the side, or the one above, but somewhere in-between. You end up with a much more immersive experience.

I got the same comments last night when I linkyed to some (just under £5!) Bluetooth over-ears from Amazon Warehouse hotukdeals.com/com…803

Suppose I just assume that everyone is familiar with Amazon Warehouse and what to expect - maybe not!

TL;DR: Over-ears have always been bargain buys for me - in-ears can be disgusting and awful (in my experience).

(My reply - seeing as quoting on the new site is a bit wonky, I put it in italics):

Amazon Warehouse's gradings are fictional at the best of times - I got over-ears (Noontec Zoro HD) that were similarly graded but just an opened box. Cost me around £7. (In fact, looking up the invoice, they were actually Used - Very Good).

Also Koss PortaPro (White Special Edition), nearly £6 Used - Very Good that were still tagged and wrapped up, just didn't have the Koss packaging. (And they are real, I once bought fake "Red Hot" PortaPros from ebay and threw the book at the seller - I know all the things to look for )

I would advise caution with in-ear headphones, definitely, as that's been a very mixed bag.

...Ultimately if you are unhappy with it, their customer service is great. But the hassle isn't fun when you receive a dud, I agree.

I guess it depends where you set the gains though. I tried the ms2 and it did work quite well at bringing the stage up into the windscreen but it crashed a few times blasting full volume dial-up tones at me so I ditched it :-\



Via nscexpert...if you go into the mask module, there is a setting for the pdc levels going from min1-3 to max1-3...it doesnt seperate back/fronts mind, just a overall setting but worth a play. My amp gains are about mid way and i've set it to min2, quite low really, but there is a nice little setting to auto mute the music as soon as pdc is in range, auto un-mute when out of range...this itself may be a good work around for you if you dont want to mess with anything else in your setup. You could also try amping the rear speakers to just to level out your speaker outputs maybe

tbh i wanted the ms8 but was just going for more then i wanted to spend, with ms2 ive just chopped the cigy wiring and hard wired it so hopefully will never just drop out..its only rigged for me aux input...not bad for few minor eq tweaks/£15

Coding to HIFI will drop this and further coding to PDC and warning levels should be tweaked too - keeps gain levels for sounds up, but also levelises the default warning/parking sounds back down. Try it out....the difference in quality is so much better/cleaner. Gladen(or equiv) looms are just plug & play and a clean (lazy) way of doing it.

If you're not changing the speakers and installing tweeters you're wasting …If you're not changing the speakers and installing tweeters you're wasting your money IMO. Yes if you want to spend a bunch of cash for the best possible setup recode to hifi then using the differential inputs into an audio processor like JBL MS8 then into an amp but all that really does is give you a clean signal. Even recoded to hifi the HU is still doing EQ on the signal... Personally I don't have a problem with the EQ of the business radio without a DSP. And the gladen loom is just an expensive way to avoid tapping into the speaker cables ;-)My way gets you 90% there for 1/3 of the cost! You could recode to hifi and add the DSP later if you felt like it was needed!

I previously bought two Monitor Audio MR1 speakers during the Amazon Prime day. I have these setup as my front left and right speakers. The new Wharfedale Diamond 9.0 are my rear left and right speakers. I happened to have an older JVC speaker that I'm using as my center channel speaker for now. I'm keeping an eye open for a good deal on a subwoofer to along with this.

As for how it sounds. I'm shocked. I have a £400 sony setup in my main room. It's all in built so sub and amp are all in one piece and the speakers are your typical small surround sound speakers. This new setup I have is so so much better. Surround sound is wide and clear. So the bass on the speakers along is decent too. The only real reason for me wanting a sub is just to complete the setup (rather than thinking that something is outstanding). I highly recommend this setup, especially for the money.
Looks good.
The only limiting factor for me is the single hdmi out.... but still good in this proce range.
This should be cooking. What a great entry point for quality sound

There's still some Amazon Warehouse returns for £250. They're marked as used very good which is basically a return.

Might sound odd but surely high quality audio is wasted on a portable … Might sound odd but surely high quality audio is wasted on a portable player due to the normal uses of that player? On the train even the best noise cancelling headphones won't block out the noise of the train, same for most with road noises.



The advantages of high quality audio gear don't get invalidated by a bit of outside noise, and not all environments you use them in will be noisy. I use my dedicated audio player when commuting because my headphones benefit from the more powerful amplifier than you'll find in a conventional smartphone.

The good thing was even mp3s sounded cleaner on mini disks and back then … The good thing was even mp3s sounded cleaner on mini disks and back then you didn't need to subscribe to get the music.



Well you don't need to subscribe now, they still sell CDs after all. You can rip lossless audio from CDs easily and enjoy a high quality audio player that way if you want to. Subscription services are just a new avenue for consuming music that will appeal more to some people than it will to others.

How good is this one compared to Astell & Kern AK Jr High Resolution … How good is this one compared to Astell & Kern AK Jr High Resolution Audio, Fiio X5ii, and Oppo Ha 2, for sound quality wise? It would be used with some AKG K702 cans, with a look to purchase a headphone amp at a later date? Tia.



Well the Oppo is DAC/amp rather than a player in of itself, so it's not really comparable without adding a few hundred other similar products into the mix!

But yeah, from the reviews I've read the AK Jr seems to have a slight edge in sheer resolution but there's not going to be a whole lot in it if you're listening with a relatively inexpensive pair of cans (in the grand scheme of headphones) like the K702s. I'd be choosing more on which has the design and features you like (the AK Jr is not an Android player so cannot use Spotify, Tidal etc).

Still waiting for the Southampton branch to call me back on getting it in … Still waiting for the Southampton branch to call me back on getting it in for me as they had none at the time (237 odd in warehouse he said).. expectation was Thursday. Guess for a fiver not spent I can't complain... still, not a good impression of a company so highly rated here for a first time buyer from them. Would have gone and bought 3 had they in stock, but opted for one on them getting it in.



Hi there,

I was obviously most concerned to read you’ve not had a call back from our Southampton branch and offer my sincere apologies.

So that I may resolve this for you as soon as possible could you drop me a PM with your details?

In the meantime, my apologies once again, and I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Many Thanks

maybe the heater was broken..
I had this installed in my old Seat Leon and it was freezing all the time.
Don't get me wrong it was a nice system (when it was working) but after replacing it with another unit new one started to behave in the same way. Returned and got Pioneer AVH-X7700BT instead (no problems after nearly a year of use).

Both were running in pure direct/direct in stereo. The pairing of speakers may have played a big part, as the speakers may just be more complete with the Yamaha sound. It's a shame as I was so ready to buy this AV at £350 looking at the specs, it's unreal for £300. If you have cheaper speakers, you probably won't notice a difference.



Thanks. Do you mean VSX1131 is very good compared to that Yamaha? I am planning for Q Accoustics 2000i 5.1 package speakers £450. Which speakers did they used in the demo?

I'm not an audiophile/snob and I wouldn't ever buy bose / sennheiser all that jazz but I do apreciate good quality sound having been a sound and lighting technician many moons ago. I think it's an excellent system. The sound is very good and in my opinion it was better than the £500 denon amp that I had before this. If you buy it from Richer Sounds they are really fine with you returning it if you don't like it and swapping it out. I swapped it after 3 days and they were fine with me exchanging it. I'm using 9.1 speaker setup with Yamaha speakers ... two are ceiling speakers and two are floor standing, the rest is from a 5.1 kit. I have my Amazon echo hooked up for streaming music, it does DTS-X just fine, everything I've thrown at it .. it has played it just great. It's probably not going to sound like a £1000 amp but since I have it plugged into an Amazon Echo and my TV I don't really mind in fact, im very impressed. I think it's a bargain at £299 very much. The firmware was a bit dodgy at first, but it's fine now as long as the first thing you do before you use it is update the firmware (very easy) and then do a full setup you should have no worries. I've played HD audio on it too (FLAC) and via ARC using plex ... so not sure what the difficulty there is but perhaps not all TVs do it .. and maybe not all formats are supported? Not sure. But Dolby Digitial / DTX / AAC have all played just fine. Get one, if you don't like it... just return it. Richer Sounds has excellent customer service.

But read some negative reviews about VSX1131 in amazon. I planned a budget of around 300£. Also considered http://www.superfi.co.uk/p-18213-denon-avrx1300w-home-cinema-receiver.aspx. Quite confused now. Any tips please which one is best? And planning to buy Q ACOUSTICS 2000i 5.1 speakers. Would it match good?
