Australian HIFI - - SOUNDBITES -

Now in its fourth in­car­na­tion, Ex­po­sure’s 3010S2-D 110-watt per chan­nel in­te­grated am­pli­fier now of­fers plug-in MM or MC phono stages or a DAC. Like its pre­de­ces­sor, the 3010S2-D comes with six line-level in­puts, but one of th­ese is now a di­rect AV in­put to en­able in­te­gra­tion within a sur­round sound sys­tem, plus a pre-amp out­put. There is now also the pos­si­bil­ity to fit an op­tional MM or MC phono stage, or a plug-in DAC. 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. The pream­pli­fier has a new cir­cuit board with all dis­crete com­po­nents rather than in­te­grated cir­cuits, while the power amp has a fast bipo­lar tran­sis­tor out­put stage for dy­namic and vivid per­for­mance. The 3010S2-D also has a new power sup­ply with ad­di­tional stages of reg­u­la­tion for im­proved per­for­mance. ‘ 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,’ said Ex­po­sure’s Brighton-based chief designer Tony Brady. ‘ 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.’ For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, please con­tact RVM Au­dio on (08) 9417 9944 or visit the web­site at www.rvm.com.au
