2 out of 5 eggseh

Pros: -Great sound
-Compatable with 5.1 systems
-Many HDMI ports for a great hub
-Easy to use

Cons: About 6 months into the use the speaker ports had been blown. I dont listen to anything loud on this receiver so it must've been the parts. Had to spend $100 to repair it.
- bad customer support
- cheap parts
- some HDMI ports are loss

Other Thoughts: I have a 5.1 surround sound speaker system coming out of this which worked out pretty well, the receiver wasn't as beastly as i had wished.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Best deal on the internet for a powerful, but basic receiver.

I bought the previous generation of this (VSX-521) to power a whole house system 2 years ago,
and it's flawlessly powered 8 pairs of speakers since then (using an impedance correcting 8 speaker selector from another web site).

I just bought this second one (now #VSX-522) to replace the similarly priced, but underpowered S-brand receiver in my garage, that cant keep up with it's 2 pairs of speakers.

Cons: none so far
Inputs & outputs have been changed a bit from the VSX-521 to the 522 model,
but the 522 adds a front iPod port so that's a plus.

Other Thoughts: Packaging was great, all the parts/instructions & original packing materials were in place, unit seems brand new, no scratches,
all features fully functioning as far as I can tell so far.

Other than the price,
I wouldn't know if it was refurbished.

Though I plan to use it a lot during its replacement period just in case it fails, I'd want that to happen sooner than later.

2 out of 5 eggsNice, but...

Pros: Good sound, cheap.

Cons: HDMI board failed within six months. Good thing I bought the extended warranty.

Other Thoughts: May be worth the risk, but I would definitely advise getting the extended warranty.

They refunded my money as a new egg gift certificate the day after I shipped it to them.

1 out of 5 eggsNot sure

Pros: Looks nice. 4 HDMI.

Cons: Not enough RCA options

Other Thoughts: To be honest, I do not know where to start. First off, when you first turn the unit on, it could start playing sound in 1 sec... could take 3 sec... could take a full minute before the sound starts playing for the cable box tv. I have tried all the different ways to set this unit up and nothing really seems to remedy the issue... I bought the guarantee that was offered when I purchased this unit because of the negative reviews on the refurbed units, but the new units got fair reviews. I am going to try a few more things... otherwise this thing needs to go back. Unfortunately, I was away for work the last 6 weeks and just didn't have time to set up quickly.. hoping I can resolve or return if needed.

1 out of 5 eggsVery sorry

Pros: Worked very good for a month and a half.

Cons: Today no power at all.
Power button doesn't work remote control power on also doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: I opened the case cover and checked the fuse but it is OK.
Checked the warranty, just over... it was 30 days only.
I'd been to LA for holiday for two weeks from Jan.6.
I used this only about 1 month actually, then I think it is too expensive even it was on fantastic price sale...
What a bad day what a bad luck I am...

1 out of 5 eggsPioneer Receiver VSX-522-K.. :(

Pros: Worked for a couple of days of use.
Radio was very smooth.

Cons: Letters on the screen mix up after the couple of days.
Tried a factory reset, didn't work.
The receiver still works though the display screen is all messed up.

Other Thoughts: The box had a puncher hole in the side when it arrived so that may have had some affect to the receiver though the packaging was fine.
