Pioneer VSX-532 overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy 4K Ultra HD pass-through with HDR and 3D support via HDMI with the Pioneer VSX-532 5.1-Channel A/V Receiver. It produces up to 80W of power per channel at 8 Ohms for room-filling sound. MCACC sound optimization will allow you to tailor the sound to your room's specific acoustics. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity lets you listen to music wirelessly from your favorite Bluetooth-capable devices. You can also attach a USB drive to the USB port on the front panel to play your stored multimedia files. The VSX-532 is equipped with four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output. The HDMI output supports ARC for the reproduction of TV-based audio, such as your TV's built-in Netflix or Hulu apps.

4K/60p Pass-Through
The feature lets you pass through 4K/60p/4:4:4 signals for viewing on a compatible display. The VSX-532 supports HDCP 2.2, so by connecting to a compatible device, you can enjoy premium content such as 4K videos with digital copy protection.
The VSX-532 is ready to pass through HDR (High Dynamic Range) signals, which is a technology designed to expand the brightness peak, providing a higher contrast between light and dark images, which creates more lifelike images.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
With the included microphone, MCACC is designed to automatically compensate for differences in speaker size, level, and distance, and equalize response accordingly to help you achieve an enhanced acoustic environment.
Synchronized Sound with Phase Control
When amplifying multi-channel audio signals, receivers use a low pass filter (LPF) to process low-frequency signals for subwoofer output. This can cause a phase shift of the low-frequency signals compared to the main channel signals, and the delayed bass makes the sound lack synchronization. Pioneer's Phase Control technology is designed to effectively eliminate phase lag and reproduce clearer mid- and high-range sound.
Master Quality with Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio
The VSX-532 supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround soundtracks, letting you experience lossless codecs that are identical to the studio master.
Enjoy Quality Sound from Compressed Audio
The Advanced Sound Retriever restores the output of compressed audio such as WMA, AAC, and MP3 files, to the level of CD sound. The technology creates new signals to restore the minor details left out during the compression process.
Built-In Bluetooth Wireless Technology
With built-in Bluetooth wireless technology (ver. 3.0), you can stream songs from compatible devices. The VSX-532 features A2DP profile, with support for SBC and AAC codecs.
Front USB Input
The front-panel USB input terminal allows direct connection for a USB memory stick. This plug-and-play connectivity enables you to easily play digitally stored music files.

    Pioneer VSX-532 reviews

    VSX-532 5.1-Channel A/V Receiver is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Nice Receiver I never rate anything 5 stars unless I am impressed over my expectations.� I rate this Pioneer VSX532 Receiver a 4 because it met my expectations and hopes, but did not exceed them.� I love it and it just works for my needs.� The sound and video is excellent.� I only have a center speaker and two front speakers hooked up and love the sound, although I had to experiment to get the sound the way I like it.� Maybe one day I will hook up my two surround speakers, but I like it the way it is.� Thank you B & H for quality products and exceptional service.� I rate B & H a 5, have been ordering a few things for years and B & H service is hard to beat.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Amp Arrived promptly and in good condition. Good build: metal case with solid controls, although most actions are handled with the remote control. Had no trouble connecting TV, Blu-Ray player and speakers (stereo at this point). Sound is quite good and plays CDs and audio on a thumb drive. Set up was straightforward with the skimpy introductory guide--had to download the full manual from Pioneer for operational details. Included AM and FM antennas are very basic and not adequate for reception from distant stations. I used a simple rabbit-ear TV antenna to improve FM reception and plan to upgrade to larger one later. Overall, a good solid unit; a good purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great entry-level home theater receiver Purchased the VSX-532 about a week ago and set it up a few days ago. I replaced a 25-year-old Sony receiver and I love it. I'm not using the unit to its fullest potential yet, but I'm really impressed with it so far. My favorite thing about it is its Bluetooth capability. Very easy to set up. If you're looking for a really good entry-level home theater receiver, this one it hard to beat for the price.
    Date published: 2017-07-31
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from compatability�issues I got this receiver specifically�to use with my computer, an Intel NUC5i7RYH running Linux.� Everything about the receiver is great except the computer display gets distorted when the NUC is connected to the receiver via HDMI, even if I'm using the Displayport cable from the NUC to the monitor.� Using Displayport from the NUC to the monitor and the stereo output from the NUC to the receiver works and the receiver does a great job of creating surround sound from the stereo input.� But the NUC can output 5.1 via HDMI.� I'm going to try Windows, Kodi, or another OS but right now the receiver seems to do everything real well except what I wanted(and maybe some Bluetooth compatibility issues with several other devices but that's of zero importance to me).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great AV Receiver 5.1 HD 4K compatible This is actually an upgrade from my previous Pioneer VSX 515 K witch I never had any problems, the reason for the upgrade was for the Bluetooth and USB features. I also upgrade my speakers to go with my new receiver, went with Klipsch R 15M and Sub 10SW. Previous speakers were the Sony SA-VE367T just out of date. Overall I love my new receiver and the features it has. I higly recommend this unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome receiver!!! I purchased this receiver to replace an older, Top-of-the-Line Pioneer receiver whose HDMI ports failed to detect connected components. This receiver had me going in 15 minutes. Detected everything, even my DirecTV box, which was not detected with my older receiver. Very happy with it. My Pioneer/Bose system sounds awesome!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love Pioneer! For the money, you won't find a better amp.� I always recommend Pioneer to people who want an affordable amp that sounds like a much more expensive amp.
    Date published: 2018-01-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from B&H No 1 - Pioneer not so much shopped @ B&H Photo 30 yrs. ago and they are still the BEST! as for the vsx-532 only 3 audio inputs, a subwoofer output that is a pre out (blew my Yamaha subwoofer out within 3 hours). average receiver at best.
