    Introducing the Pioneer VSX-522-K AV Receiver

    With 400 watts of clear audio reproduction and state-of-the-art technology, the new VSX-522-K is the perfect entry-level receiver to let you experience Pioneer’s heritage of quality sound reproduction and innovative technology in your home system.


    The VSX-522-K seamlessly brings your iTunes® music library where you want it: your living room. Because it’s Made for iPhone Certified, the VSX-522-K is compatible with iPod® and iPhone® devices. Plus the front panel USB port is ready for the newest sources for music: smartphones, tablets, most Android™ devices and thumb drives, and has been upgraded to handle CD quality, uncompressed 48Khz/16-bit MP3, WMA and AAC files.


    Ultimate Sound Control

    The VSX-522-K supports the latest high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. Pioneer also includes all Dolby and DTS surround formats best suited for the wide variety of available entertainment sources, including the newest Dolby Pro Logic® IIz height channel.


    The VSX-522-K also features Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC), providing an optimized multi-channel listening experience by measuring every speaker's connection, noting its size and distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre in order to calibrate, customize and maximize performance specifically for your room.


    Pioneer’s exclusive Phase Control feature provides coherent sound reproduction through the use of phase matching for an optimal sound image at your listening position.


    With the unique Front Stage Surround Advance feature, you experience a virtual surround sound environment. If you don’t want to worry about routing speaker cables around your room, your speakers can be placed up front and still sound great.


    By filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process, even audio like WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, letting you enjoy near CD quality sound from compressed music sources.


    There's also an Auto Level Control, equalizing volume differences between portable audio tracks or television programming and eliminating jarring volume changes. Which means the only thing that shocks you is how good it sounds.


    The Latest HDMI® Technology

    All Pioneer's newest receivers support the latest HDMI specifications. Not only do you get the most out of existing movies and music, with the VSX-522-K you're prepared for the new generation of 3D video content. With 4 HDMI inputs, you have plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available. All Pioneer receivers also offer advanced HDMI conveniences. The VSX-522-K has Audio Return Channel, which allows TV audio to go back through a single HDMI connection - a must feature for the newest smart TVs. Plus its HDMI Standby Through mode lets video and audio signals pass through the VSX-522-K to the TV even when the receiver is off.


    All this and looks too.

    First impressions are everything. That’s why, as the heart of your home theater system, the VSX-522-K with its modern, compelling lines and stunning new brushed finish, reflects a solid, high quality and easy to use, state-of-the-art receiver.
