    I am currently looking for an amplifier for my shahinian arc. he should have an MM phono.
    I tend strongly to the exposure 3010. also because the price fits for me.
    are there any other suggestions?

    What’s your budget?

    Try the Belles Aria. One of the best amps I’ve ever heard and to silly money.

    Linn Majik DSi if you can find one.

    Has all you need and one is sitting driving my Arcs, replaced a Linn/Naim tri amped system.

    Your first instinct is a good one.

    I have heard Arcs sounding great powered by Rega Osiris.

    The JVC is so ugly that I could not enjoy music anymore

    ...but it will drive Shahinian Obelisks with ease so will have no trouble with the Arcs.

    Most decent amps will be ok but they do like a bit of power.

    Best I've heard with Shahinian was my old Pass Labs Aleph 2 monos with a Modwright LS36.5.

    The closest you'll get to Pass Labs sound for less than a lot of money is the vfet based amps.

    I would suggest GamuT amps. Or try an Aaron No. 1a or Aaron the Chrome One. Truely great amps.
