    Pioneer VSX-S520 reviews

    VSX-S520 5.1-Channel Network A/V Receiver is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean sound receiver This unit replaced a Sony in our 2017 Newmar Motorcoach.� Sound is excellent and far superior.� The auto setup made things easy.� Beware, No pass thru for HDMI when the unit is OFF, so the HDMI switches are not being used, just the audio.� Sub signal out to the powered sub is also excellent.� The sound, weight and height of the unit is the main reason for the replacement.� Most RV builders use cheaper audio units.� This Pioneer is a great upgrade for quality, size and much less heat in the audio cabinet.� Extremely pleased and recommend for replacing the 6" high units used in quality Motorcoaches.� �B&H is always great to do business with - year after year.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality, poor Pioneer warranty claim process.� Avoid. First off:� B&H was great to deal with, so this is not a reflection on their excellent customer service. This is solely a review of the product and manufacturer. On paper, this looks like a nice unit.� AirPlay (and many others) compatible and some other features make this and initially attractive unit in this price range. Unit failed after 7 months.� I had to seek repair/return with the manufacturer who simply referred me to a 3rd party. It has been 17 days since I have sent this unit for repair.� The only contact I received from the 3rd party was that I needed to send my remote to them so that they could get out of 'protect' mode so that they could repair.� Past that, I have had no update from this 3rd party until I reached out to the 3rd party who informed me that their backlog of work would mean up to a 4 week repair period. If I knew how weak their warranty claim service was at time of purchase I would have avoided altogether. Good luck with your purchase or avoid this manufacturer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Receiver At This Price Point I bought this because my everyday hi-fi system has vintage and new components, and I needed a receiver with both HDMI and RCA connectivity. While this works just fine, be aware that it does not have RCA analog in/out capabilities for a tape deck. I'm using the CD input from a high-end cassette player, but have lost the ability to record directly from the Pioneer receiver.
