I once had an Exposure 10 which I bought new in the late 80s or early 90s. I think I paid around the same for new, what Audio Gold are asking for a 2nd hand item which is 25 years old or more . I'ts hardly a collectable item like Lecson for instance. (Reminds me a of a well known company in Cumbria :mrgreen)
The Exposure 10 was a very good amp though, if rather bass shy (with ES14s) and for this reason I swapped it for an Inca Tech Claymore, which I preferred. I remember HiFi magazines at the time recommended both amplifiers as a minimum requirement for EPOS ES14s.
Inca Tech also made a very good gold-plated mains extension block, which I remember took some time to be delivered. I telephoned the company only to be greeted with: 'Raving Loonies!' I think the poor fellow (obviously very stressed) did not realise I was a customer at first! Anyway, I received a profuse apology and thought the whole episode hilarious!
I'd rather spend my money buying from places like Hi-Fi Hangar for example.
