Control The Power Of Sound
Pioneer designed the Pioneer VSX-531 AV receiver to deliver powerful cutting edge features at an entry-level price point. The Pioneer VSX-531 is equipped with a 5 channel discrete amplifier with the same quality on all 5.1-channels delivering up to 140 Watts (6 ohms, 1 kHz, THD 1.0 %, 1ch Driven) of power per channel of clear audio reproduction.
The Pioneer VSX-531 creates a dynamic, lively, and realistic ambience derived from the original sources, expressing the audio details as the artist intended. Most typical AV receivers use a Low Pass Filter to process low-frequency signals for the subwoofer when amplifying multi-channel audio signals causing low frequency “phase lag” from the main channels. The Pioneer Phase Control technology effectively eliminates phase lag, enriching the booming power of deep, low frequency audio, while maintaining the original’s subtle nuances.
The Pioneer VSX-531 supports 4K/60p/4:4:4 24-bit video signal transmission using HDCP 2.2 technology, ensuring you always have access to the many upcoming 4K UltraHD sources and televisions with HDR. Ready for the next upgrade to your visual experience, Pioneer engineered the VSX-531 receiver to be compatible with the latest standards.

Polk Audio MC60 High Performance 6-1/2″ Round In-Ceiling Speakers (5)
The Polk Audio MC60 6 1/2″ Speakers take practically invisible in-ceiling sound practically anywhere in your home, including the bathroom and transitional spaces like porches and sunrooms. The MC60 is easy to install, and with a 6 1/2-inch midwoofer and 3/4-inch aimable silk dome tweeter, the compact, basic MC60 delivers surprising performance without costing a bundle.
Experience rich, engaging sound from speakers that disappear into your room. Polk’s MC60 speakers, install flush in your ceiling for a sleek, attractive look. The 3/4″ tweeter lets you aim the high frequencies for the clearest sound in your room. The 6-1/2″ woofer provides smooth bass and mid-bass. And this speaker’s moisture-resistant design means you can enjoy it in your kitchen, bathroom, sauna, or even outdoors, installed under the eaves.
Building a system
Install a pair of the MC60s for stereo music listening. These speakers can also work as the fronts, center, and surrounds in a surround sound system. The MC60s are voice-matched with the other MC in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, so you can mix and match.
MC Series: The Polk Audio MC Series in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeakers offer great built-in sound for multi-room listening. The MC Series features Dynamic Balance driver technology, an aimable tweeter, and polymer cone woofers, which ensures your music always sounds crisp and clear. The MC Series also uses infinite baffle tuning for excellent bass response, so you can install them in virtually any kind of wall.
Dynamic Balance Technology: Laser imaging technology allows Polk Audio engineers to see the entire vibrating surface of a driver and tweeter; they can actually see the resonance develop on the speaker cones-resonance that is the root cause of loudspeaker distortion. Being able to see the resonance develop, they then determine the Dynamic Balance of high-tech materials, geometry and construction that together effectively tune out the offending resonance. Exclusive Dynamic Balance Composite Material Technology delivers sound that is effortlessly clean and clear, even at lifelike volume levels.
Woofer: The Polk Audio MC60 in-ceiling speaker features a 6-1/2″ Dynamic Balance Polymer Composite Cone for smooth wide-range response with low distortion. The polymer composite cone provides excellent damping and bass response while resisting deterioration. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a rubber surround.
Tweeter: The MC60 in-ceiling speaker uses a 3/4″ aimable silk dome tweeter with neodymium magnet for clear, detailed highs and excellent imaging even for off-axis listening positions. Aiming the tweeter toward your listening position improves imaging and detail.
Infinite Baffle Tuning: Infinite Baffle Tuning uses the virtual enclosure of in-wall/in-ceiling space for superior bass response.
Moisture-resistant: Durable, moisture-resistant materials allow you to install the speakers in bathrooms, kitchens, saunas, even under the eaves of an enclosed porch. (The speaker is not recommended for exposed outdoor use.)
Timbre-matched: The MC Series speakers are timbre matched to Polk Audio’s freestanding speakers, such as the Polk Monitor, TSi, and OWM series; just in case you need in-wall/in-ceiling surround speakers to match your freestanding fronts.
Installation: The round shape and flush-design allow the MC60 to mimic the look of a recessed lighting fixture. Each speaker requires a cutout diameter of 8.1875″ and a depth of 3.9375″ behind the drywall. Each speaker frame has a 9.1875″ diameter. Once the holes are cut, each speaker is placed in the opening and the Rotating Cams are tightened, allowing you to secure each speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly. The cam extends 1.75″ deep from the mounting surface of the speaker and will accommodate up to 1.5″ drywall thickness. When the cams are rotated, each extends 0.875″ beyond the 8.1875″ cutout diameter. If you will not be mounting these speakers in drywall, make sure the wall or ceiling material can safely support the weight of the speakers before installation; each speaker weighs approximately 3.1 pounds.
Paintable: The grille and flange can be painted, allowing these speakers to match any decor.
