Black-face Pioneer receivers were a premium product produced for a short time exclusively for the European U.S. Military P.X.s (Post Exchange), especially West Germany. They were not sold to the general public. Collectors really like the look of these receivers so Pioneer black-face receivers are hard to find.

The Pioneer SX-5530 from 1975 is in great condition. It is similar to the SX-535 consumer model and has ample power for home use with any reasonably efficient speakers. Like all Pioneer receivers from the 1970s, the build quality is excellent with aluminum face plate and knobs. The sound is clear and warm, the tuner is sensitive, and the phono stage is excellent. Black face receivers differ from consumer models by having a multi-voltage power supply (with regular plug) and switch selectable FM-de-emphasis.

I acquired this receiver from the original owner who purchased it new at the military Post Exchange in Germany.

Online information.

Condition: Contacts cleaned, fully-tested, and in excellent original condition. I see no evidence of any repairs. All lights, meters, controls, and FM stereo are working. The faceplate and walnut-finish case are scratch-free and in great condition.
