Pioneer VSX-1131 review

Read Here


A concern may be that this rampaging low-end and powerful presentation is hiding shortfalls elsewhere. Certainly not with steering or effects separation – the subterranean shootout in Sicario (Dolby Atmos) is well-orchestrated. However, the VSX-1131 can feel a little light on mid-range drive and articulation. Centre-channel dialogue is clean and clear, but I wanted a bit more body to voices. Likewise, with music material, the AVR is more in tune with basslines and rhythmic impact than unearthing subtleties in instrumentation. Def Leppard’s rocker Animal sounds stonkingly energetic and drips with swagger, but the guitars need more of a cutting-edge.”
