The new 3010S2-D is the fourth incarnation of Exposure’s integrated amp. Like its predecessor, 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 24bit/192bit 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, in case you want to bi-amp your system. Speaker terminals are doubled to allow bi-wiring.
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. Cascade 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. A new power supply adds extra stages of regulation.
The Exposure 3010S2-D integrated amplifier is available in silver or black, priced at £1,700. Optional additions include: on-board MM phonostage, £240; on-board MC phonostage, £240 and on-board DAC, £325.
