  • Summary: Pioneer makes a quality product. This receiver is perfect for a family room setup as it has lots of HDMI inputs, and the power to handle large or small speakers. For the price you can't go wrong.

  • Summary: It sounds very good, but only on stereo mode, when put it on surround mode, the volume goes very low on the fromt speakers, so I'm not sure if it is a normal feature, anyway, i like the fact that I can play music directly from the memory stick on the usb and also that you can control the Aple devices, and that it also charge the devices while playing. The only thing that is weird is that I turn it off and it turn on by itself and I know we don't have ghosts at home!!!!

  • Summary: I actually pick this up for my son as a house warming gift. I did the installation of the unit for him hooking this entry level unit to a full Polk Audio speaker system. The fronts are a pair of RTi4's Center is CS250, rears are T15's and PSW10 sub. The viewing is handle by a 50" Panasonic plasma. The AVR has just what a beginning system needs, not many inputs in the rear, but enough to get you started without feeling you are losing out on something.

Sound system restored

Scott Francis, Amazon

  • Summary: I recently bought the Pioneer VSX-522K as a upgrade to my previous sound system. My old sound system was a Kenwood stereo system my dad bought in 1987. I wasn't going to upgrade my system until after I bought a new HDTV but the stereo control amplifier on the old Kenwood system finally kicked the bucket and forced my hand. My best friend has a Pioneer system in his dorm room so figured I'd start looking at Pioneers.

  • Summary: Constant problems with HDMI output. Very touchy about compatibility with Directv and other components. Would definitely recommend going another route.
