“This is very much an audiophile integrated amplifier that just happens to be small, rather than a ‘lifestyle’ product masquerading as separates hi-fi. It’s a joy to set ears on.”

The Exposure XM5 is a neat and well-equipped integrated amplifier that does nearly everything the contemporary music lover might desire. Sound quality is as ever highly dependent on finding a good match on the loudspeaker front, and while the XM5 doesn’t have vast reserves of power, meaning you have to be a little more careful than usual, get the speaker selection bit right and this Exposure should provide many moons of listening pleasure.
