Look up the specs. He gave the model number.

Pioneer VSX-531

Yeah, your clicking on that to see it, LOL! Don't be so lazy! :)

That looks like one of their budget models so I would expect no atmos on that.
If I'm honest I must have had a blonde moment and just completely ignored the text and just looked at the picture lol I'll click on the link and take a look ;)

EDIT - Can't see enough speaker outputs to see compatibility with Atmos.. Looks a decent unit for the price :)

No Atmos but does have DTS-HD and Dolby - TrueHD it's good enough for it's purpose though which is Gaming and Audio and it's 140W x5 @ 2ohm or 80W x5 @ 8ohms (which is what I have) and it's plenty loud enough for me
What is with me missing replies!! :( Many apologises, well as it's for gaming and such, it'll be massively decent enough for the task :D I thought the Logitech Z-5500's I had seemed overkill really but that's another level :D Awesome! What speakers do you have to go with it? :)

Benchmark Scores it sucks even less much now ;)
Well lets face it the newer ones are much lighter, the older one i have here (VSX-56TXI) is around 42lb even the feet on that are solid metal lol the dam transformer is heavier than that whole unit. either way he likely got it though it having what he wants on it. Maybe connecting it to a PC and so forth.
yes connected to PC via optical out on my SB X-Fi Fatality Titanium pcie sound card and as for weight yeah it's about half the older VSX-D457 and slightly smaller footprint aswell but I have to admit a much cleaner and crisper sound too which I like alot

Got a new cpu and gpu/mobo for my dell n5110.
Upgraded from an i3 2330M & iGPU to an i5 2540M & GT 525M. Still not fast, but older games can be played reasonably well when the gpu is oc'ed to be faster than a GT 550M.

Getting annoying static/pop noises from the audio with this new mobo though. :( Seems like a common issue. (Edit: Looks to be caused by newer nVidia drivers)

Kinda glad I didn't go for a quad core since the cooler in this is pretty small, this i5 hit's ~80c in sustained AVX load. The gpu is only in the 60c range when benching.

I still run it quite a bit since it's quick to install and the cpu tests are very hard for oc's to pass stable.

Fixing the left right channels be pretty easy normally ( don't sound like the main transistors failed ). Shit gets more complex when there is HDMI involved.

Picked this up at Best Buy for $22...


Also ordered a USB hard drive dock which is turning into my most frustrating Amazon order yet.

I originally ordered it on January 25th, and Amazon said it would arrive on the 27th. Then suddenly, it was running late, so I got a refund. I then reordered it on the 31st, and everything seemed to be going smoothly until today.

Both Amazon and USPS say it was delivered, but I checked on my front porch and in my mailbox, and it isn't here.

Edit: Turns out they left it at the end of my driveway rather than going the 20 feet to my front door. I wasn't expecting this level of incompetence/laziness.



Speed directly connected to my PC over SATA 3

Benchmark Scores Don't know any benchmark. It runs good enough for me.
I got these two memory card on a discount. I think I somehow made a mistake purchasing the 512GB although it was highly discounted with free shipping and coupon code for the new year, the price per GB ratio is not as good as the 256GB. I was too tempted cannot pass up the deal and wanted the 512GB for my new phone so I don't have to worry about space after formatting as internal storage. Once I load this 512GB into my phone there is more storage on my phone than my deskstop sandisk ssd boot drive lmao. Holding this tiny card barely the size of fingernail feels like holding some space age tech. Currently the 512GB is the biggest micro sd card as of now as I type this, I thought the sandisk 400GB was big enough.

Rest of the components survived shipping! But will they survive me? :p



It posts!

This upgrade was much more stressful that I anticipated (I've never worked with this many brand new components before). I ended up bending the shit out of the pins in the USB3 header by the SATA ports due to the weird angle I was working at. Fortunately the board has another, so I made sure the pins weren't touching. I'll probably repair it later.

I'll install the R1 eventually. Just wanted to get this thing together and usable. One minor annoyance was how my 525GB Crucial SSD kept BSODing when I tried to boot to it. Not a big deal since I was planning on making an SSD upgrade anyway. Currently have a temporary setup on my PNY drive until I can get an NVMe drive for this.

I'm excited to finally get to use this thing!
Geekbench 4

Stock speed with the stock cooler and it already beats my OCed 2600K!
Cinebench R15

Precision boost and XFR are pretty cool. Already seen this thing boost up to 4.4GHz and even 4.7GHz briefly.

Benchmark Scores it sucks even less much now ;)
nice build and great perf just one concern I wouldn't leave that PCIe power plug there if I were you it'll drag the end of the card down better to bring it out the same tray hole as the 24pin power cable
