All you have to do is connect the coaxial out from pc to any audio i/p at the back of vsx d512.but ensure you select the right channel to play the audio ( eg. tape i/p select tape at front control, aux i/p select the aux at front control )

The best way to do this (if you haven't done this already) is to enable the Dynamic Range Control. This neat little setting makes the difference between loud and soft to be not so much, making soft sounds (like talking in your case) louder and something like explosions not so loud. This is also called Midnight Mode on some receivers. To enable this setting, grab your remote and turn the receiver on. Press the "Receiver" button, then hit the left arrow on the remote until you see something along the lines of "Dynamic range control" pop up on the LCD (should be the 8th setting). You probably want to set this to "Max", but you can also select "Mid" if you find that Max does too much.
If this still does not work, you can bump up the relative volume of the center channel a bit (or a lot of bit). Hit the "Standard" button on your remote, then "Test Tone" until "C" or "Center" comes up on the LCD. Then hit the "Level +" button a few times, making the center channel a little louder. Listen to it a while and adjust it to your liking.
The combination of these two settings should get you where you want to be. By the way, do a search on your favorite search engine for something like "manual Pioneer VSX-D512" and you should be able to download a manual from somewhere (it looks like Pioneer no longer hosts the manual on their site). Hope this helps!

Sounds to me like a thermal shutdown. If it's no longer under warrenty, try opening the housing and spraying the inside with compressed air to free up any dust. Dust acts as an insulator and doesn't allow the heat to dissipate.
Beyond that, I'm not sure what else could be done without a service manual.

This indicates the audio output stage in the receiver is loading down and triggering the overload protection circuit to kick in. Check the speaker wires for shorts, if okay! you will need a professional to assess the cost for repair.
