So many features in such a slim device.

Just 85 mm high and 317 mm deep, Pioneer Slim Receivers are designed to fit in any popular TV or home cinema rack. And with the “Sound Wing” mode, they are the ideal companion for Sound Wing speakers for 360° surround with just 1 or 2 speakers.

Plug in your iPod or iPhone, and it becomes one with the receiver. Or insert a USB device to play PC files. And when you connect to your internet via LAN, you can enjoy internet radio and automatic firmware updates.

The slim VSX-S500 brings you the HD home cinema, with the option to intelligently adjust the sound according to the position of your speakers using MCACC. This way, you'll always be in the sweet spot for perfect audio when watching a film or gaming.

An AM/FM tuner is built-in.

It has 6 HD inputs including 4 x HDMI.

Digital Direct connection with your iPod, iPhone

No need for a dock – you can connect your Apple device directly to the receiver. Thanks to the digital connection, you get the best possible audio quality (further enhanced by the Advanced Sound Retriever). Furthermore you can view photos and videos on, and stream apps like YouTube to your TV.

True home cinema

Turn your living room into a cinema with 5.1 HD surround sound. With speakers in the front, rear and middle and and a subwoofer connected, you’ll immerse yourself in a lively film experience.

High-definition audio

Besides Dolby Pro Logic IIz, the receiver supports Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio so you can enjoy uncompressed, high-definition audio from Blu-ray discs as well.

Bluetooth audio streaming

If your phone, laptop or tablet is is Bluetooth equipped, you can live stream audio to the receiver (with optional adapter). The Sound Retriever AIR restores sound quality after transmission.

The latest, convenient HDMI technology

With HDMI, you can use this receiver to watch 3D video from a Blu-ray disc. Other convenient features include an Audio Return Channel for TVs with DVD player or Tuner built-in, for example, and Standby pass-through.

Intelligent speaker calibration

Surround speakers can hardly be ideally positioned. MCACC therefore analyses the existing sound field using a microphone (included), just like a sound professional, and adjusts the sound timings to precision-tune the system to your room.

A WiFi converter is optional.
