The Exposure XM7 pre-amplifier is one of the finest compact components available today. Hand built in England, it is fully featured and continues a long line of award winning Exposure products.
Designed by Tony Brady, the new XM7 was built with the modern audiophile in mind. USB, optical and BNC inputs (typically used in a studio environment) are converted through the high resolution DAC. A quality MM phono-stage will please the most demanding vinyl lover and the discreet headphone amplifier is powerful enough to drive the most demanding headphones. A fixed AV input has been added for use with a home theatre amplifier and everything is powered by a toroidal power supply that could easily drive a power amplifier. There is nothing else like it in this price range.
Perfectly paired with the Exposure XM9 mono amplifiers or other components from the XM Series, the XM7 is the perfect solution for audiophiles in a confined space or those looking for a more discreet solution than a full sized component. The soundstage, timing and musical trademark of Exposure continue the 40 year history of this superb British audio brand.
