Pioneer 5.1 Home Theater Receiver, 3D Ready - VSX-522-K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

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.
