Question Pioneer VSX-S510 / VSX-S520 Power Output & EQ


Standard Member
Hi all :)

I've been looking at the Pioneer VSX-S510 & its successor the VSX-S520.

It seems to me the power output from the VSX-S520 is a retrograde step with lower figures than for the VSX-S510. However I cannot be sure given they don't use the same standards for quoting the figures. I've enclosed the figures from the manuals here. Can anyone clarify for me?

Also does anyone know if the EQ for each speaker can be manually adjusted on the VSX-S510? There's nothing in the manual to suggest this option is available, whereas it is available on the VSX-S520.


Output spec's for the VSX-S510:
