NEW BOULDER 3010 FLAGSHIP PREAMPLIFIER

And finally the official info and photos about the all new Boulder Amplifiers 3010 flagship preamplifier…

The 3000 Series has become synonymous with the ultimate in sound quality; a level of performance reserved for only the finest audio systems in the world. But traditional thought says that the more features and functions added to a preamplifier, the more of an effect they have on sound, right?

Once again, Boulder’s engineers have proven traditional wisdom wrong and achieved something very special. The 3010 is easily the greatest preamplifier in the history of the company. It’s also the most flexible preamp we’ve ever designed.
