Ortofan's picture

... heat sink for the output transistors, this is it.
Can't believe the designer thought that a simple L-bracket attached to the rear panel was sufficient.

If the author was under the impression that the Exposure's "overall build and parts qualities are excellent" and "the unit is nicely finished", he should have examined a Pioneer Elite A-71, which was a contemporary of the XV and sold for about the same price:

there was something very special and individual about this Exposure amp and it's contemporaries like the Naim Nait Creek's 4040 and Audiolab's 8000A. In some ways the NAD 3020 is the original of these UK designed integrateds, all quirky and punching way above their weight musically and sonically even if they were not luxury products per se. They all clarified details and penetrated into the music in a very different way than most audio products of their time.
