About Exposure Electronics…

Exposure Electronics has been committed to 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 the excellent reproduction of recorded music which he nurtured while working in studios with the likes of David Bowie and Pink Floyd.
Much may have changed in 39 years but Exposure’s focus has remained on producing great hi-fi that delivers hair-raising and spine-tingling listening experiences. Exposure hi-fi is still designed in the United Kingdom, since 2000 by fellow Brighton-based hi-fi engineer Tony Brady, who has known John Farlowe since 1979.  For 39 years Exposure products have been designed developed and engineered using highly specified components by people who are obsessed with stereo sound reproduction, passionate about music and are built.  All Exposure products except the 1010 series are still made In the United Kingdom.
The understated look of the finished products reflects traditional simplicity and elegance. 
The signature Exposure sound, however, is something else. There is 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 by combining the speed and precision of the best solid-state designs 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 music while the equipment itself hides in the background. This is cool, since most people prefer to listen to their music rather than the hi-fi.  Exposure is available throughout most of the World via a network of specialist shops run by people who know a thing or two about the complex relationship between people, hi-fi and music.
