This page is intended to demonstrate the incredible value of our 6 Year Supercare. Under recent legislation, we are obliged to point out that you obviously do not need to purchase an extended warranty at the same time you purchase your electrical goods and are entitled to shop around. We have been encouraging our customers to do just that for years because, not only are our prices significantly cheaper than our competitors, but just look at what else we include:
Free loan machine (only if taken back to store)
Should you encounter a problem, just ask and you'll be provided with a unit to ensure you're not without music whilst your equipment is being fixed.
Like for like machine if unit is unrepairable
If, for any reason, we are unable to repair your unit, we'll replace it. Naturally, models do change so, while we can't guarantee that it will be the same model, we do guarantee that it will have equivalent specifications.
Free routine service / Maintenance checks
have your unit serviced as often as you wish, free of charge, during the 6 year period. (Normally excluded from extended guarantees).
45 day cooling off period
If you're not happy with our 6 Year Supercare package just ask for a full refund - no questions asked. After 45 days, providing no claim has been made, you can also terminate the agreement and receive a pro-rata refund.
If you use the policy in the 6 years, you'll have saved yourself tens and perhaps hundreds of pounds. If you don't use it...IT WON'T COST YOU A THING!*
* Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your warranty. Terms and Conditions

With soundbar-beating audio and input flexibility, the Pioneer VSX531 is your entry to truly immersive surround sound.

Top value cinema sound

Featuring both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD surround sound processors, the Pioneer VSX531 makes an ideal entry into the immersive world of High Definition surround sound. With 100w per channel, the VSX531 has the power to fill all but the largest rooms and makes even the best TV sound tinny by comparison.

Stream music from your mobile via Bluetooth
With a Bluetooth receiver built in, it's easy to enjoy your music from other devices. Pair with your smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC and wirelessly stream all your favourite music. With the possibility of streaming music services, such as Spotify, Deezer and Tidal, as well as your own music library, you get access to near unlimited music!

Advanced Sound Retriever for enhanced detail
Advanced Sound Retriever (ASR) improves the dynamic response from compressed music sources, adding 'sparkle' to the sound and restoring the sound quality. Ideal for use with WMA, AAC and MP3 files played via disc or USB, ASR makes music sound more realistic than before.

Equipped for a 4K future
Although focused on value, the Pioneer VSX531 still has an eye for the future. Featuring the latest HDMI connections with support for HDCP 2.2, you can stream UltraHD video and it's ready for use with the exciting new range of 4K UHD Blu-ray players.

USB and multiple sockets
Also standard is a front-mounted USB socket. Plug in your USB device and you'll instantly be able to playback MP3, WMA and AAC music files. There are also four HDMI inputs, both optical and coaxial digital inputs, a range of audio and composite video connections and a headphone socket for private listening.

Easy set-up
Despite packing a lot of tech in, the VSX531 is easy to set-up and use. Pioneer's unique MCACC (Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration) system tunes the amplifier to the size of listening room and speaker placement, at the touch of a button. Phase Control technology means a cohesive sound between the speakers, wherever you choose to place them in the room.

Take your TV's sound to a new dimension, with the immersive Pioneer VSX531.
