(NT) I downloaded the manual and the answer is simply no.

That's why I ask what the OP had in mind.
by ahtoi / January 9, 2015 10:45 AM PST

I noticed there's a "pre-amp" out and a "composite out"...which may not be "line out" in the straightest sense but maybe could be use as such.

The closest to line out was the head phone jack.

But it failed the 5.1 requirement.

Subwoofer connections
by b-we77 / January 9, 2015 10:28 PM PST

speaker level inputs for Hi Level IN on subwoofer accepts a stereo speaker level full range signal from a receiver/power amp using 4 speaker wires... You don't have to use these 4 connections If the receiver/power amp has a Line Level full range signal output, you just use a phono jack Y adapter to make the 2 connections for the subwoofer Line In !!!
Now the dumb question is = Which of these do I use for the surround sound setup??

I am puzzled.

Something else puzzles me,

why the AVR have a "pre-amp" out...could that be for the SUB. but just didn't label it as such? Why don't you give that a try? In fact, this is a 5.1 AVR, right?

I just took the trouble of reading the manual and it says the sub-woofer do connected to the "pre-out". Your post should have ask ...where/what is the "line level" connection on the sub-woofer. I'll be back with the answer after I find out.

Ok, for surround setup,
by ahtoi / January 10, 2015 4:39 PM PST

use the phono jack.

Try asking the questions again.

1. Does the Pioneer VSX-522-K 5.1 channel AV receiver have 5.1 channel line level output ?
No it does not. That's easy to see with the documentation at Pioneer.

2. I think you have a new question. But it's lost in this post somewhere.

Maybe the OP is right.

I might still have got the situation correctly. We don't know anything about the sub-woofer either.
