The Pioneer VSX-519V is a entry-level receiver in Pioneer's 2009 A/V receiver lineup. The VSX-519V is the successor to the Pioneer VSX-518-K released in June 2008. Pioneer announced their most recent A/V receiver line (VSX-1019AH, VSX-919AH, VSX-819H, VSX-519V) at the 2009 CES event in Las Vegas. The Pioneer VSX-519V is set for an April, 2009 release date with an estimated MSRP of $200. Pioneer's new line of A/V receivers is specifically designed to read the content directly off the iPod units and decode the audio using integrated digital-to-analog converters; meaning no more grainy analog sound like most music listeners are so used to. The VSX-519V will also include additional features such as 3 HDMI ports (2 in/ 1 out), 3 Digital Inputs (1 coax/ 2 optical), full color jacket graphics output support for the iPod media content, a glowing remote control, and 5.1 channel analog audio. When compared to the other models in the lineup, the VSX-519V notably does not include high definition audio decoding support, video transcoding or upconversion, or enhanced the iPod OSD found in the other models.

Do NOT purchase this reciever.. had repaired inder factory warranty & experienced same problems 18 months later-- in which it was no longer under warranty. Not worth the trouble of purchasing this product. VERY disappointed in Pioneer!
