Bluebird Music Rocks Hard

I walked into Jay Rein’s Bluebird Music room and was immediately taken by the hard-rocking sound of Led Zeppelin’s “Moby Dick,” reproduced with appropriate drama, impact, and scale. Here we see Rein standing beside Spendor’s new A9 loudspeaker ($7295/pair). Introduced at this year’s Bristol Show, the A9 made its North American debut at SSI 2010, and sounded excellent, driven by Exposure’s new 3010S2 series: 100W monoblocks ($2595/pair), preamp ($1395), and CD player ($2195). The S2 series replaces Exposure’s Classic line and represents a 50% power increase for one-third less money, Rein told me. Van den Hul’s D352 speaker cables and D102 interconnects ($929) tied this impressive system together.

The new Exposure 3010S2 offers 50% more power and significantly better sound quality, however it is one-third less money, (not one-third the price).

Thanks for the correction, Jay. I've revised the blog text.

HiI can't find any reviews and I'm wondering how the 3010S2 CD player compares to the original 3010 and 3010S?Many thanksChris
