The Exposure 5010 reference preamplifier is hand-crafted in England to the highest standard. These are the pinnacle of the current line-up and we believe they are some of the best-sounding components we have heard, certainly in their price range but for components costing many, many times more.
Exposure began producing audiophile components in 1974. If you have not heard of the brand or have not auditioned it recently, we would encourage you to seek it out. A recent article from The Ear is in line with our experience and an excellent resource if you are in the market.
