Pioneer SX-535


Features of the Pioneer SX-535 include:

Advanced Tuner Section

FM tuner section using high stability circuitry / FM front end with FET and rectilinear frequency three stage variable capacitor / IF amplifier circuitry with high reliable integrated circuits developed by Pioneer.

Incorporation of two twin-element phase-linear ceramic filters and high stability circuitry components makes for excellent image rejection, superior capture ratio, improved SN ratio plus selectivity - in short, tip-top performance all round.

Phase Locked Loop circuitry is used in the multiplex circuit to prevent deterioration due to temperature changes and the passage of time.

Pioneer's low distortion and excellent separation characteristics provide for stable operation which ensures enhanced FM stereo listening pleasure for you.

Low Distortion, Wide Range Power Amplifier

Thanks to the use of extra-reliable NPN and PNP silicon power transistors and a differential one-stage, completely and superior frequency characteristics are assured; moreover, the output range and the distortion characteristics are greatly improved.

The differential amplifier circuit and the temperature compensation circuit further ensure that the stability and superior performance of the Receiver are not subject to external conditions, and this adds up to extra stereo listening pleasure for the customer.

High Fidelity Preamplifier

The utilization of the finest components available in the equalizer circuit keeps deviation from the RIAA standards down to a minimum, thereby making an important contribution to the faithfulness of record reproduction.

A Receiver which can Handle any Program Source Amongst the input jacks on the back panel are turntable and auxiliary connectors, two separate tape deck terminals (for cassette decks or open-reel decks) plus microphone jack on the front panel, so that any source whatever can be utilized to provide flexible listening pleasure.

Personal Music Library can be Compiled

By connecting two tape decks, the desired portions only can be edited from previously recorded tapes. Duplication of programs from one tape machine to the other tape can also be performed.

Two Sets of Speaker Systems may be Connected

This Receiver is furnished with two sets of speaker terminals on the back panel and the corresponding positions on the speaker selector switch. Thus you can play whatever music you are listening to through two pairs of speaker systems at once, so you can have the same program playing in two separate rooms simultaneously.

Advanced Ultramodern Design

The entire design of the SX-535 Receiver has been carefully thought out with efficient functioning in mind.

The entirely new-look Receiver will fit in with the decor of your listening room perfectly, thanks to its tasteful wooden cabinetry and top quality appearance.
