Exposure has launched the new 3010S2-D, the fourth incarnation of the British brand’s top integrated amp. Like its predecessor, the 3010S2, the new 3010S2-D comes with six line level inputs. However, one of these is now a direct AV input to enable integration within a surround sound system. There is now also the possibility to fit an optional MM or MC phonostage, or a plug-in DAC board. The latter is capable of up to 192/24 bit PCM and DSD 64, and comes with two inputs: USB and BNC, with auto-switching between them. A preamp output allows for tagging-on of a separate power amplifier. Speaker terminals are doubled to allow bi-wiring. Exposure 3010S2-D Amplifier As is the case throughout the 3010S2 series, much attention has been paid to the circuit design in order to extract the best possible sound quality. Special high-quality capacitors are used in the signal path, and the circuit topology has been mapped with a view to keeping signal and power supply paths short. Cascode circuitry is used for improved power supply immunity. The preamplifier now sports a brand new circuit board with all discrete components rather than integrated circuits, while the power amp features a fast bipolar transistor output stage for dynamic and vivid performance. A new power supply adds extra stages of regulation for improved performance. This all slots into an attractive aluminium casing with extruded front panel for improved resonance control and EMF screening. The Exposure 3010S2-D integrated amplifier is available now in silver or black, priced at £1,700 (incl. VAT). www.exposurehifi.com
