General information [contribute]

Exposure web site (Febuary 3, 2010): Exposure Electronics has been committed towards engineering real hi-fi at real world prices since 1974. Back then, the original Exposure products were born out of founder John Farlowe's obsession for excellent reproduction of recorded music, having worked in studios with the likes of David Bowie and Pink Floyd.

Much may have changed in 33 years but good hi-fi is still all about hair-raising and spine-tingling listening experiences. Accordingly through the years, Exposure's focus has remained very much on delighting the ears, so to speak.

Designed in the United Kingdom, Exposure products are engineered by people who are obsessed with sound reproduction and who are passionate about music. They are committed to two channel stereo and they make hi-fi that is fitted with highly specified components. The look of the finished products is best described as understated.¯ They say this reflects traditional simplicity and elegance.

The signature Exposure sound, however, is quite something else. There is a delicacy in the upper ranges and openness in the mid range, underpinned by deep yet agile bass that "dances" along. Hi-fi critics have praised Exposure for offering rightness¯ in sound as well as the best of both worlds - in terms of the speed and precision of the best solid state designs flavoured with a touch of the "sweetness" of valves.

So, to put it simply, the engineering and design philosophy is to make hi-fi that gets on with the task of reproducing the right sounds while fading into the background. This is cool, since most people prefer to listen to their music rather than the hi-fi.

To expose¯ yourself and hear the difference, pick out a few of your favourite CDs and pay a visit to one of Exposure's dealers. There should be one in your part of the world - they are usually specialist shops run by people who know a thing or two about the complex relationship between people and hi-fi.

Ask to listen to an Exposure set-up. Load in a chosen disc. It may be a breathy vocal performance spanning five octaves or a house mix with trouser-flapping backbeat. The Exposure system should let you sink into the music. Try another disc or two. Does the Exposure sound turn you on?

If it works for you, ask the dealer about the price of the system. The price of a 2010S or 3010S system should be as pleasantly surprising as the sound. As mentioned earlier, Exposure has been making real world hi-fi at real world prices since 1974.

Most people who invest in a 2010S or 3010S system will not be worrying about their hi-fi for quite awhile. They will be too busy investing in new music to listen to.

For the select few who demand the ultimate in higher-end sound reproduction, Exposure recommends the sublime Classic¯ series the XXII CD player partnered with the XXXV integrated amplifier or a XXIII pre-amplifier and XXVII dual monobloc power amplifier or the truly exceptional and inspirational MCX series of components. Happily, such Exposure esoterica will dazzle even the most jaded ears yet it still represents good value for money in relative terms, of course.
