Item specifics

Condition: Seller refurbished Brand: Exposure
Type: Integrated Amplifiers
Exposure X (TEN) John Farlowe's first integrated amp
Moving magnet pre-amp built in.
Built with no compromises this amp means business, form the initial trademark switch on thump to the controlled musicality of the sound. 
The power supply is regulated internally, something rarely found in an integrated amp.
This amp has had a previous speaker cable short circuit, but has been serviced using genuine Exposure parts and recommendations.
Whilst the top was off the opportunity was taken to replace capacitors, transistors, regulator transistors and all power transistors making sure that this amp is performing at it's best.

The case has thick aluminium front and back with an aluminium top plate.
The case has been refurbished (see pic) with only a couple of marks to the front and rear panel, touched in but left as is because of the lettering.
These amps are quite rare and don't come up often, they are not to be parted with.

Oh and I almost forgot.
For vinyl lovers it has a cracking moving magnet pre section.

I'm selling as I have acquired an Exposure VIII power amp which for me allows me to follow an upgrade path, but between you and me the X sounds slightly better than an VIII on it's own.

As per the warning on the rear, fancy cables should not be used with this amp.

Please contact me with any questions, always glad to answer.

From Exposures classic site:

The design of the Exposure 10 integrated amplifier uses similar circuit design and constructional techniques as the rest of the Exposure range.  Thus, by not cutting corners in design and manufacture, we have been able to produce an integrated amplifier which sets new standards of performance and reliability.

The one piece PCB (Printed Circuit Board) is double sided and constructed from 2mm glass fibre.  The layout enables wiring to be kept to a minimum and ensures consistent construction and long term reliability.  The input phono sockets are mounted onto a smaller PCB which is in turn mounted onto a rear panel, this is then hard wired to the PCB.  This technique has been used to overcome the inferior mechanical connection which results from the use of conventional PCB mounted sockets and in turn makes for better performance and long term reliability.

The "phono" input offers both moving magnet and moving coil sections via the use of a replaceable board which may be fitted by your dealer to suit your requirements.  We have opted for this method in order to reduce the degradation associated with switching these very low and delicate signals and believe that the small inconvenience of this method is far outweighed by the improvement in sound quality.

The power amplifier section is a world first for an integrated amplifier.  It offers total regulation which has the dual advantage of enabling the amplifier to drive low impedance loads safely whilst reducing distortion to levels which are usually associated with more upmarket pre-power amplifier combinations such as the Exposure 7 and 8 however, because of this there is a healthy switch-on thump which is totally harmless to your speakers.

Our policy of using components produced to our own exacting standards gives us an advantage over our major rivals using standard off the shelf items.  The use of custom designed and made components enables us to produce a better end product offering superior sound quality and reliability.

Designed and made for aesthetic appeal the new case is an aluminium extrusion which is visually compatible with most environments and most other audio components.

What better comment could we make, than that written by Chris Frankland, Editor of Hi Fi Review when he said, "There is no doubt that Exposure have another sure-fire winner on their hands here, and since there is nothing remotely comparable at the price, they have also created a valid niche where they have no natural competitors".
