Pioneer VSX-534 Overview

  • 1Description

Enjoy 4K Ultra HD pass-through with HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision support via HDMI with the Pioneer VSX-534 5.2-Channel A/V Receiver. It produces up to 80W of power per channel at 8 Ohms for room-filling sound and supports the Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 3-dimensional audio formats. MCACC sound optimization allows 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. The VSX-534 is equipped with four HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, which supports ARC for the reproduction of TV-based audio, such as your TV's built-in Netflix or YouTube apps.

Dolby Atmos and Dolby Surround Upmixing
Dolby Atmos surround sound technology dispenses with channel-based coding in favor of more advanced object-based coding, giving the sound designer the ability to precisely place sounds anywhere in the 3-dimensional space. The VSX-534 features the ability to connect a 3.1-channel surround sound speaker system and two additional overhead speakers, or two additional Dolby Atmos-certified up-firing speakers. Additionally, audio codecs such as PCM and DSD can be upmixed using Dolby Surround for 3D surround sound.
DTS:X and DTS Neural:X Upmixing
DTS:X is designed to leverage object-based audio to enable immersive and interactive audio experiences. Since DTS:X can automatically adapt the audio to the existing channels and speaker system, no specific speaker layout is required for an immersive soundscape with lifelike audio. Audio codecs such as PCM and DSD can be upmixed using DTS Neural:X for 3D surround sound.
Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization, Available via a Future Firmware Update
When playing any Dolby format, engaging this mode enables a more immersive listening experience by creating virtual surround and height effects from traditional speaker layouts without using surround or height speakers.
DTS Virtual:X
DTS Virtual:X is designed to provide a three-dimensional immersive sound similar to DTS:X, but without height or rear speakers. It supports 2- to 7.1.4-channel input sources for delivery via 2- to 5.1-channel speaker layouts. It works with all DTS codecs, including DTS:X.
Supports HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision, and BT.2020
The VSX-534 supports pass-through for HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision signals. By connecting a compatible source device, you can enjoy these video standards on your compatible display. Additionally, all the onboard HDMI terminals support 4K (60p/4:4:4, 24-bit), Wide Color Gamut (BT.2020), and HDCP 2.2 for enhanced compatibility.
MCACC Auto Room Tuning
MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System) 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.
Zone B Output
The VSX-534 is equipped with Zone B audio output terminals for expanding the Main Zone sound by connecting your wireless headphone dock. You can listen to the sound playing in the living room via wireless headphones. Alternatively, you can connect an amplifier located in a second room to play synchronized audio in both rooms.
Built-In Bluetooth Wireless Technology
With built-in Bluetooth wireless technology, you can stream songs from compatible devices. The VSX-534 supports the A2DP and AVRCP profiles and the SBC and AAC codecs. By pressing the Bluetooth button on the front panel, you can start the Bluetooth function, even from standby mode.
Personal Preset
Press the Personal Preset button on the front panel for three seconds and your current settings, such as volume level and listening mode, will be saved. Up to three presets can be registered and recalled via the front panel button or the remote control.
Dialogue Enhancement
This mid-range sound control feature allows you to make independent volume adjustments to boost the dialogue in your movies. These volume adjustments can be made with the up/down keys on the remote control.
On-Screen Information for Audio/Video Status
The on-screen display shows detailed input and output information for the playing content, so you can see whether your video is being output in Dolby Vision, or if the movie is processing Dolby Atmos or DTS:X audio.

    Pioneer VSX-534 Reviews

    VSX-534 5.2-Channel A/V Receiver is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Receiver Sounds very good and most receivers in this price range dont have zone b with line outputs. This receiver is perfect for me because I cant run rear channels but can still have the height channels for atmos. I also like the size of this unit its not a huge like the higher end receivers. My units remote had some buttons where the white printing was faint as if the printing was wearing off. I called Onkyo / Pioneer for a replacement and the rep said I would have to send them the one I had before I could get a replacement. Of course this would probably take a few weeks and the receiver would be useless without the remote. I would have called B&H but they are closed for Passover. Totally unacceptable Pioneer. So if you read this do the right thing and send me a new remote.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Hi-Fidelity sound but with limitations The machine replaced my VSX-822. Installation and set-up were a breeze; completed in about three hours. LI have an extensive digital music library dating back to the mid 1980s with close to 500 albums. The Stereo sound is fantastic (from Elad Debut 2, 6 inch speakers and Pioneer small woofer). Regardless of genre (classical, jazz, R&R, Americana), it all sounds great. Most video content is streamed through my Apple TV with equally impressive sound. Limitation is at its largest configuration it can be five  channel surround or three channels plus Dolby Atmos; one or the other but not both at the same time. If it could do five channel surround plus Atmos at the same time, the rig would be rated a five! But, thats all okay with me since I plan to keep this for about two years and then upgrade to a push-pull (A/B) type Amplifier circuit; most likely a NAD receiver.
