Pioneer VSX-D515 Confusion



Hello all -

I've heard many good things about this forum so I was hoping you guys could help me out.

I'm interesting in the Pioneer VSX-D515 Receiver. It's a very cheap price for what you seem to be getting. (ie. 5.1/6.1 on discrete channels, Dolby EX, DTS ES, etc etc)

I am a bit confused though. According to the two sites in canada you can get it from -

There are composite outputs in the back, which are key. The problem is the website lists this as the d515-S model. On the pioneer website there is no mention of the S model and instead is shows the K model as having component outputs. When I searched around the web a bit it seemed like the S model is componentless while the K model has components, but there is also evidence that shows they could both be exactly the same just one in silver and one in black.

Does anybody have any advice on this, or know whats going on? Thanks a lot in advance.

As you allready mentioned at the end - S and K letters are intended to distinguish between black and silver receiver.

Have a nice day
