Exposure 3010S2D Integrated Amplifier
The 3010S2D series is for the new generation of music lovers.
Designed to introduce you to the distinctive Exposure sound, the 3010S2D series comprises a CD player, integrated amplifier, pre-amplifier, power amplifier, mono power amplifiers, phono card for moving magnet (MM) and moving coil (MC).
Hooking these up to a proper set of speakers takes just a few minutes. However, listening to your favourite music all over again will take hours... as you tickle your ears with real hi-fi sound.
It's all about tuneful bass, sparkling high frequencies and an open mid-band that brings the performers into your room... at a price that will leave you smiling. This is how hi-fi is supposed to be - simple, affordable and fun.
Moving up from an Exposure XV I was thrilled to hear that unmistakable Exposure sound with natural musicality at its heart. But with oh so much more. The treble is sweet and pure: strings shimmer, voices really do sing. The timing is a delight and if you like the snap of a snare drum you will rarely have found it so sharp and tuneful. Presentation is notably detailed, but the music never loses its centre unlike some I have heard where disparate elements are scattered across the soundstage like an unassembled jigsaw. We all hear things differently so listen for yourself. but this amp for me was everything I had hoped for, and a little bit more.

Yes it has been a good addition to my Hifi setup (it replaced Exposure X amp). After running it in after 48 hrs I have noticed a more balanced sound and it further benefitted from BI-wiring in my instance. Listening to words is now easy and it reflects the way the CD or Vinyl was recorded. I can now appreciate a wider choice of music, some I had previously discounted such as Adele and Bob Dylan. Not being able to demo it in advance I have found that the reviews to be accurate. I was prompted to buy it with the discounted price and discussions with Peter (Igloo audio) who provided me good advice and backup. Having listened to other amps and not being impressed.

My expectations were high from the 3010S2D, following all of the great reviews. Straight out of the box, the sound quality is staggering and taken to a new level when the amp is warm. It manages to retrieve detail I did not know was there and does this without sounding over analytical. The music seems to take on a holographic quality and there is more depth to it all. I've owned several solid state integrated amps over the years, some more expensive than this but this is the best so far. Build quality is superb too. The whole buying process from Igloo was friendly and prompt.
I gave it a 5 star rating after the comparison against the amps which I owned at the time, which was a 282, 2502, supercap 2 & I found that 3010S2D, at a fraction of the price of my amps, were capable of performing, in my opinion, nicer than those I owned. I owe all this to the conversation & guidance that Peter (from Igloo Audio) gave me.
excellent service many thanks

All round I cannot fault this amp at all. Clarity and soundstaging make it a pleasure to hear music I've not played for ages, no matter what genre.

I've used Exposure products for years. This replaced my much loved and long serving 2010s Integrated and didn't disappoint! A huge increase in resolution and depth in soundstage compared to its more forward sounding predecessor. Silky treble, clear open midband, supple base and great timing. The after sales service from the dealer and Exposure was also outstanding.
