Any chance you'll be getting any of the higher end models in this line in for testing? I'm specifically looking at any of the following: VSX-920-K, VSX-1020-K and VSX-2020-K, and the SC-LX73 and SC-LX83

Im not sure which vsx 520 you guys reviewed...because the vsx 520 does NOT have the Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration (MCACC) mode.that is only on the vsx i cant TRUST these trusted you wont publish this comment either!

@John McLean:

Hopefully we should be, though I couldn't say when.


Don't you know bigger is better?

Seriously though, aside from all the large components inside, not to mention all the connectivity on the back panels, cooling is one of the reasons these machines tend to be as big as they are.


That's odd, because if you look at Pioneer's official spec-page, it lists MCACC as one of the primary features... {}

So do trust our reviews - and you lost that bet :)

Hi Folks,

I own one in the States and it doesn't have MCACC. Maybe the Euro version does. I also looked at the link you provided and I can't find it. I was going buy to another brand that did, and I stumbled upon the 520 at a reduced price because it was an open box item.

For guys with BD players and a surround system, I suppose this is a fine amplifier - for music it is pathetic. The hoops one has to go through just to get almost *almost* the actual sound from the sound source is hilarious and then you'll never get it untouched, because it's "advanced surround" effects will *never* turn off.

This dumb product is only for people who think HDMI is an important feature on an amplifier, and then only those who don't have much money. You get what you pay for, steer clear of this one. Pathetic.
