To celebrate 50 years of creating ‘real hi-fi for real music lovers’, Exposure Electronics is proud to announce the new 3510 CD player, the final piece in the British brand’s much-lauded 3510 series of hi-fi components.

When CD was launched four decades ago, it was advertised with the slogan ‘perfect sound forever’. Of course in reality nothing is either perfect or forever, but despite various pronouncements of the death of the CD, the format lives on, taking its rightful place alongside vinyl, digital streaming services and tape in the modern music lover’s diverse collection. Still, the launch of a brand new CD player is a relatively rare event these days, so one to celebrate.

As always, the Exposure design is clearly informed by what customers actually want in practice, rather than by the latest trend. First, it 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. Second, learning from the success of Exposure’s compact XM CD player, the 3510 again sports the brand’s bespoke top-loading mechanism with sliding lid and magnetic clamp. Here, loading a CD feels almost as pleasing as cueing up a vinyl record.
