Product Details

Pioneer SC-1523-K 9.2-Channel Home Theater AV Reciever

Pioneer’s SC-1523-K AV receiver combines support for the latest in audio amplification, digital video formats, and smartphone/tablet compatibility. Get the most from your digital library with 9 channels of Class D3 amplification. Surprisingly simple to set up and navigate, you'll be hosting movie nights and super bowl parties without breaking a sweat.

Class D3 Audio Amplification

First and foremost, the SC-1523-K is built with the power and finesse of Pioneer's Class D3 amplification. This technology is a perfect match for current digital audio formats. Unlike traditional Class-AB amplifiers, it won't lose power when running all 9 channels, even at 4 ohms per channel. This is due to its impressive 90% efficiency rating. Less heat means less power wasted. 

Video Connections for Every Device

Imagine a picture with four times the resolution of today's high definition: it's called 4K Ultra HD. The VSX-1523-K is fully compatible, supporting pass-through, 3D & 4K Ultra HD video upscaling, and multi-zone distribution. All video sources can be converted to HDMI® through Pioneer's Advanced Video Adjust (powered by Marvell Qdeo® video processing) and enhancing video for the industry's best upscaling solution. The VSX-1523-K features eight HDMI inputs and two zone-selectable HDMI outputs. One HDMI input is located on the front panel, and is MHL-capable for mobile devices.

Modern Technology Integration

The VSX-1523-K is Made for iPhone® and Made for iPad® certified, allowing not only audio playback but charging of your iOS device, including the new iPad mini. Add support for Apple's AirPlay® wireless music streaming, and the VSX-1523-K is by far one of the most Apple® friendly AV receivers available. This receiver also offers HTCTM Connect, the only unified solution for streaming music from your AndroidTM smartphone.  Use DLNA 1.5 to stream music from a PC or audio hard drive through your home network. Pandora and vTuner are built right into the device. Pick up the optional Pioneer AS-BT200 to enable wireless Bluetooth connectivity as well.


An industry-first, Pioneer's AVNavigator is an interactive owner’s manual that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your receiver. Use your networked PC, MAC or iPad to communicate directly with the SC-1523-K, walking you through speaker set-up, Advanced MCACC room calibration, sound optimization, firmware updates and more.

Multi-Zone Capabilities for the Ultimate Custom Theater Solution

The SC-1523-K offers custom-installation solutions for your home theater, with Multi-Zone capability that lets you set up three systems. Now, you can enjoy home theater in the living room, television in the bedroom and listen to music in your home office. Support for Pioneer Apps, third-party control devices, custom-ready detachable power cord, and IR in/out for universal remotes make this the ideal receiver for custom home entertainment.
