Question about Pioneer Vsx-521-k 5.1 Channel A/v Home Theater Receiver

1 Answer

My pioneer pl-200 doesn't play loud enough through my pioneer vsx-521-k receiver

The turntable is an older Pioneer PL-200 and the receiver is a newer HDMI 3-D Ready Pioneer VSX-521-k. The turntable simply has a red/white connection with a ground wire. Just curious if it may take buying an amplifier or pre-amp to make the turntable come through louder on the surround sound? The xbox has no problem with volume but the turntable is still rather low and lacking on bass even at max volume. Thanks for the help!

The PL-200 has no pre amp and your VSX-521 has no phono input. You need an RIAA preamp.

SOURCE: Pioneer VSX-D209 receiver shuts off when too loud

Dear Tabasco,

Your receiver is basically going into protect mode.

Just check your speaker cabling again. Make sure that all of them are seated properly, none is touching each other or the body of receiver. Take out all the wire and put them back again if necessary..
Some times even a little tiny frayed wire touching the receiver could trigger the protect mode. Be careful, since protect mode is sometimes not fast enough and it could blown a few trasistors in the power circuit.
Just check your speaker as well....whether they play all right thru another receiver or amplifier. its posiible they might be shorting inside. A little frayed wire could also trigger the protect circuit in your receiver.
I hope this should solve your problem.

If everything else seems all right and still your receiver shut down when you raise the volume then it possible that there are bad connections on the main board that are set in.

This would generally happen if the system is slighly old or have dry solder and when you raise up the volume. This should be a simple repair that will not require parts. If you can solder, you will be able to repair this yourself. If not, then a local service center will change the local labor rate.
Hope you can sort out your problem with the above trouble shooting. Let me know if I can guide you further.
Best of luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

Hello,
Unfortunatelly your receiver has failed. The front panel is telling you one of the power modules is probably bad. Not an DIY type of repair. These parts are near $40.00, plus cost of replacing.
Look at options to replace your trusted receiver with a new one.
Good luck

SOURCE: Pioneer vsx-819H: MCACC setup won't display on tv

I would say check the cable version not everyone knows this but there are different version HDMI cables such as 1.0,1.1,1.2 and the newest 1.3 cable these are band-with depended cables and if you use a lower version this should work if not you might have a issue with video.

Other then that you might have a issue with the unit if all other signals are working on the monitor.. Ruling out this will be hard if you do not have another monitor to test it on. I would be conducting a test on other output monitors and see if you get any results.

please press the accept button as I worked hard to answer you question.

Pioneer turntable to Pioneer VSX 515 receiver


I'm not sure what you mean by "Wot", but I assume you mean that the receiver doesn't have a phono input, as most receivers now a days don't. You will need a phono preamp. Cost is under $25.00. It provides the amplification to be able to use any high level(CD, DVD, AUX, etc) input as well as the RIAA equalization you need to decode the record correctly. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

How do i connect a pioneer pl-630 turntable to a pioneer vsx-1919ah receiver


Are you meaning it doesn't have a connection for a turntable, just aux connections etc?
Check if it has a magnetic cartridge pre-amp first, if it doesn't you can get one just put the words: magnetic cartridge pre-amp, into Google to find one. Once you get it that will plug into an aux socket and the turntable into that, so you can hear the sound.

Are the record size tabs sticking up through the turntable platter cover? They sense the size of the record being played and adjust the run out distance for either 45 or 33 rpm records.
