Bottom Line:   
Well, it took ages to choose between the Audiolab 8000S and the Exposure. I found that the level of detail and clarity delivered by the Audiolab were unbeatable. However, after much swapping of components and music styles, I kept coming back to the Exposure RC 25 - it really shone when it came to classical music - the Audiolab sounded cold and uninspiring by comparison.

The levels of warmth and natural realism are unbeatable at the price, and I agree wholeheartedly with the statement that the Exposure works well with Ruark Talisman II's, as that's what I use! They are partnered with hand made DB interconnects (about £300) which are incrediably revealing, and a Pioneer 505 Special Edition CD player, which is a little too bright tonally for this partnership. The only downside to this Amplifier are the aforementioned remote control system, which appears to have a life of its own.

I can forgive the remote control problem, as the amplifier is so well-rounded in all other areas.

Bottom Line:   
I think the Exposure is the most balanced of the current integrated amps. I tried the Audiolab 8000S, which I found had the impact I liked, but lacked the deep bass and was far too bright and dry. The Cyrus amps were very good but too processed sounding for my liking. The Arcam Alpha 10 has a lovely sound, but lacks attack and life.

The Exposure goes amazingly well with Ruarks.
