YOUR ENTRY TO ENHANCED AUDIO FIDELITY

The Pioneer VSX-531 AV receiver is the ideal centerpiece for elevating your home theater system to a richer, more authentic audio experience. As a starting gateway into the immersive world of High Definition surround sound, the Pioneer VSX-531 features 4 HDMI inputs and Ultra HD (4K/60p/4:4:4) pass-through with HDCP 2.2, easily handling the latest technology and devices, with standard support for all of the latest HDR video standards for vivid high-resolution playback.

Enhance your listening experience with audio streaming from your mobile devices using the built-in Bluetooth® Wireless Technology, or with Pioneer’s signature Phase Control technology for synchronized sound, delivering a realistic and dynamic performance made for your room.

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.

phase_1EMBELLISH LOW-FREQUENCY AMBIENCE

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.

HDCP2_2_4k4K UltraHD COMPATIBLE

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.

HD AUDIO UNCOMPRESSED

Polk Audio VS265-RT High Performance In-Wall Loudspeakers

747192120306_studio_detail - CopyFor the biggest full range dynamic audio, with no visible speaker boxes, you need the power and potential of the Polk Audio VS265-RT In-Wall 3-Way Speakers that includes Polk’s patented PowerPort Bass Venting system. Easy to install, you can build a complete high performance audio system that blends seamlessly into your decor. Tailor the performance to suit your room environment with superior audio controls to guarantee the most spectacular sound. Use Vanishing loudspeakers to unobtrusively bring music to every room or area of your house. Even while performing at this level, Vanishing RT speakers are a great value in today’s hottest style of custom-installed loudspeaker.

A Terrific Trio of Drivers

You can bank on great performance. Dual 6-1/2″ woofers and a pivoting silk-dome polymer tweeter deliver wide frequency response, from deep bass to crystal-clear highs. Built-in switches let you tailor the sound to match your specific room and installation. Finish off by painting the magnetic Sheer-Grille™ to match your wall color and the ‘265 is ready for showtime.

Sheer-Grille™

The Polk Audio VS265-RT unique, wafer-thin grille is magnetically secured to deliver nearly transparent, ultra-small perfs and dynamic, unimpeded sound.

Power Port®

Polk Audio VS265-RT Patented bass venting design smoothly transitions air flow, eliminating turbulence and distortion, for deeper, more efficient bass impact.

Timbre-Matching

Compatible with Polk Audio RTi speakers for seamless blending between traditional and built-in speaker systems.

Reflective Room Compensation

Polk Audio VS265-RT Lower tweeter levels offset reflective surfaces, cutting the level in the exact 4-5kHz band where reflectivity destroys sound quality.

Distance Toggle

Polk Audio VS265-RT Crossover adjustments flatten response bumps caused by nearby walls, reducing “boominess” for more lifelike sound from any position.

Simple Setup

Polk Audio VS265-RT Perfect Fit templates, a precision flange, available pre-construction brackets and the patented Rotating Cam system ensure secure, vibration-free installation.

Product Research

Vanishing Series In-Wall Loudspeakers: The Polk Audio Vanishing Series 265-RT in-wall loudspeaker features a precision-engineered, minimally flanged design. Polk’s exclusive Sheer-Grille protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings, and installs virtually-flush in your wall. Mounting the speaker is simple with a one-cut, drop-in installation and the rotating cam stabilizing system. The speaker provides superior high-performance sound from its dual 6.5″ woofers and aimable 1″ tweeter with Reflective Room Compensation control.

Driver Technology

Dynamic Balance Technology: Laser-imaging technology allows Polk Audio VS265-RT engineers to see the entire vibrating surface of a driver and tweeter. This allows the engineers to actually see performance-robbing distortion develop on the speaker cone. Using this data, they can determine the Dynamic Balance of their high-tech materials, and alter the geometry and construction of the speaker to 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.

Klippel Optimized Motor Structures: The Klippel Distortion Analyzer allows Polk engineers to optimize each driver’s motor structure, voice coil alignment and suspension to insure smooth, unimpeded movement even at extreme listening levels. This is especially important in the shallow depth area afforded an in-wall loudspeaker.

Dual Woofers: The Polk Audio VS265-RT in-wall loudspeaker employs dual 6.5″ Dynamic Balance mineral composite polypropylene cone woofers with rubber surrounds for a smooth, consistent frequency response. The drivers feature a lightweight, strong composite basket that works in conjunction with Klippel Optimization to keep moving parts in rigid alignment while further damping performance-robbing resonances.

Silk Dome Tweeter: The Polk Audio VS265-RT speaker employs a 1″ Dynamic Balance silk polymer composite dome tweeter for crisp, clear imaging. The high-performance tweeter features a 15° swivel housing, for more direct high frequency control, excellent off-axis imaging and more placement flexibility.

Reflective Room (Tweeter) Compensation Control: An easily accessible Reflective Room (Tweeter) Compensation switch allows you to make detailed adjustments to optimize the sound for any installation. The switch can be used to digitally compensate for harsh reflective surfaces. The switch doesn’t merely reduce high frequencies, it actually allows you to “notch-out” a specific area of the spectrum (3500-6000Hz) where room acoustics most often interfere with performance. The switch has two settings:

  • Filter Setting: If your listening room is very reflective, with smooth sheetrock walls, hardwood floors, and non-cushioned furniture, the sound will be overly “bright” and unnatural. Selecting the “Filter” setting compensates for the effect of reflectivity in a hard room. Tweeter attenuation flattens room response, without hindering higher frequency response, for warmer, more realistic sound and more accurate imaging.
  • Normal Setting: If your room is not reflective, with curtains, artwork, lots of cushioned furniture and carpeting, sound will be absorbed by the room, resulting in more realistic reproduction and more accurate imaging. In this case, select the Normal setting.

Timbre-Matched: The Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall loudspeakers are timbre-matched to Polk Audio’s high-performance RTi bookshelf and floor-standing loudspeakers. This allows you to match them to an existing Polk Audio home theater speaker system and enjoy seamless blending from speaker to speaker. Timbre-matched speaker components will insure the same true response throughout your system.

Frequency Response: The overall frequency response of the in-wall speaker is 30Hz to 27kHz, and the -3dB frequency response is 45 to 25kHz.

Infinite Enclosure Design

Infinite Baffle Tuning: Infinite Baffle Tuning uses the virtual enclosure of the in-wall space for deep bass response and superior overall sound.

PowerPort Bass Venting: The 265-RT features Polk Audio’s patented PowerPort Bass Venting. The oblong-shaped port has rounded edges which smooth air turbulence at the mouth of the port to eliminate distortion. A foam rubber port plug is included, and should be inserted when the speaker is installed in an area larger than a standard open stud bay.

Wafer-Thin Sheer-Grille: The Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall speakers feature Polk’s exclusive wafer-thin Sheer-Grille, a magnetically-secured grille that protrudes only 7mm from its surroundings. The Sheer-Grille can be painted to match your décor, making it virtually indistinguishable from its surroundings. The Sheer-Grille has nearly transparent, ultra-small perfs, and are acoustically inert, for dynamic, unimpeded sound and more uniform coverage, even in larger rooms.

Note: When painting the grille, it is highly recommend that you use a can of spray paint matched to the color of the surrounding wall. Brushes or rollers should not be used to paint the grille, as this will clog the perf holes.

Connections

Gold-Plated Spring-Loaded Posts: The 265-RT has a gold-plated pair of spring-loaded binding posts that can accept up to 12-gauge wire, single banana plugs, or pin connectors.

Mounting Options

Applications: You can use the Polk Audio Vanishing Series in-wall loudspeaker as main left and right speakers mounted alongside your flat screen TV, or for superior dynamics in practically invisible multi-zone music systems.

Rotating Cam System: The speaker utilizes a rotating cam system to ensure a secure, vibration-free installation. There are eight rotating cams to hold the speaker securely to the wall.

Installation: The 265-RT can be installed in new or existing construction:

  • Existing Construction: In existing walls, use the included cardboard template for one-cut, drop-in simplicity.
  • New Construction: Pre-construction brackets (sold separately) are available for new-build or open-wall retro-fitting.
