Exposure 3510 Integrated Amplifier Early Exposure

Early Exposure

Founded in 1974 by John Farlowe, Exposure set out to make 'real world hi-fi at real world prices', shoe-horning audiophile circuit design into basic but sturdy matt-black casework. In practice, the fledgling brand took flight with the Exposure I speaker, followed by the II shortly after [HFN Jul '77]. The first amplifiers were a solid-state pre/power combination dubbed the III and IV [HFN Oct '78] that went head-to-head with competing black boxes from that other estimable Brit brand of the same era, Naim Audio, in Salisbury.

By the mid-'80s, the X integrated amp had proved itself popular, followed much later by the XV [HFN May '95], XX and XXV derivatives. The digital revolution had rather passed Exposure by for the first 15 years until it finally launched its first CD player [HFN Mar '99]. Subsequently there was a veritable flurry of silver disc spinners including the 2010 CD [HFN Jun '02] and premium XXII CD player [HFN Nov '03]. Early products were designed by Farlowe, and later by his successor Tony Brady who has held the chair from 2000 to the present day. Tony masterminded the 2010 series [HFN Feb '01] and, very soon after, the long-running 3010 series, only now superseded by the new 3510 amplifier featured here. Finally, although still describing itself as 'a British company...', with its design and manufacturing base remaining in Lancing, West Sussex, Exposure Electronics Ltd has been in Malaysian ownership for the last 20 years.
