Exposure unveils 3510 CD player and 360 turntable

Exposure has announced the launch of its 3510 CD player and 360 turntable (pictured). The 3510 has the flexibility of operating as a standalone CD player, while also being designed as a CD transport to connect with either the company’s 3510 or 5010 preamplifiers or the 3510 integrated amplifier, fitted with the optional DAC board. It sports the brand’s bespoke top-loading mechanism with sliding lid and magnetic clamp and key features include a dual mono PCM1704 24-bit DAC, fully discrete audio output circuitry with multiple stages of supply regulation, a large toroidal power transformer with separate windings for CD transport mechanism and audio stages, a high-stability crystal clock reference and dedicated power supply regulator for the transport and audio stages to ensure low jitter performance. It comes with a remote control, measures 440 x 90 x 300mm (WxHxD), weighs 5kg and comes in a black or titanium finish. It is priced at £2,500.

The new Exposure 360 turntable is built around a super lightweight plinth, in which a core of polyurethane foam is sandwiched between an extremely thin and rigid high-pressure laminate. A dual-layer float glass platter, whose increased mass is designed for high-speed stability, sits atop the sub-platter, which in turn is part of the bearing assembly and comprises a single piece of machined aluminium, also designed for enhanced speed stability. The bearing features an ultra-low friction brass hub, anchored to the plinth using a machined aluminium collar.

The low-noise, synchronous 24V motor is driven by an aluminium drive pulley with belt. A dedicated, separate power supply, which is hand-tuned and precision-matched to the motor for each individual turntable, is there in a bid to prevent unwanted noise from entering the deck and ensure that delicate low-level signals are protected from potential sources of interference.

The power supply unit provides push-button speed selection, advanced anti-vibration control and electronic fine speed adjustment. The 360’s integrated tonearm features an arm tube designed to ensure fewer points of possible resonance, while its mounting is braced to the bearing housing with a view to ensuring maximum rigidity and accuracy.

The isolation feet are made from santoprene rubber and reinforced by aluminium, the deck comes in a grey matt finish with high gloss black polymer edge trim and a red mat. It’s supplied with a smoked polystyrene dust cover and is suitable for use with MC, MM or other cartridges, priced at £1,300.
