HiFi Choice review,
exposure at the little audio company,

The Exposure XM HP provides a pair of 6.3mm headphone sockets for use with any type of headphones, but also a pair of balanced XLR connections for use with high end headphones. Either two pairs of these sockets allow the use of two pairs of headphones at the same time.

The inclusion of a high quality DAC for the Exposure XM HP opens up its flexibility and versatility. For this, Exposure have chosen to use the Wolfson WM8742 chipset.

The WM8742 DAC is capable of decoding any digital material up to 24bit/192kHz, as well as native DSD64. The addition of this DAC allows digital inputs - the asynchronous USB input is perfect for the likes of Innuos media servers, and the optical and coaxial digital inputs are ideal for media boxes from the likes of Sky or Virgin, or media streamers like Sonos or Bluesound.

The Exposure XM5 amplifier provides three analogue inputs,including a high quality MM phono stage. Digitally, there are two optical and two coax BNC digital inputs, plus an asynchronous USB input.

A pair of analogue outputs provide a fixed level output, and a pair of pre-outputs allow connection to power amplification and use as a pre-amplifier.
