THIS is for dedicated vinyl enthusiasts – Exposure Electronics has just released a new reference-class phono amp, the VXN. It is designed to be partnered with the VXN Power Supply, in a twin-box set-up where the sensitive phono circuits are entirely isolated from the power supply circuitry for lowest possible noise and highest possible performance.
That’s not the end of it, though, Exposure tells us.
“For the absolute maximum experience, two VXN power supplies can be used, one for each channel, in a three-box dual mono configuration.”
The fully adjustable input stages can be tailored for either MM or MC cartridges, ensuring that
loading and gain are “optimally set to faithfully retrieve the finest details and deliver
the involving musical reality for which Exposure has become renowned.”
These are the key features of the VXN phono amplifier:
– All audio circuits use discrete transistors only; no integrated circuits in the signal path.
– Very low noise power supply with multiple stages of regulation.
– High quality resistors and capacitors throughout the signal path.
– Very high quality polypropylene capacitors in critical areas of the RIAA equalisation.
– Separate MM and MC inputs selectable on the front panel.
– Adjustable loading and gain switches on the back panel.
– High quality all-aluminium casework and extruded front panel, to control resonance and stray
– MM input: 5mV input for 500mV output, 40dB gain setting.
– MC input: 500uV input for 500mV output, 60dB gain setting.
The Exposure VXN phono amplifier, available in any colour as long as it’s black, is priced at £1,790. Units are already shipping, so check with your local Exposure distributor for home region price and other details.
