the exposure is similar to the audiolab, but maybe not as 'warm'. the classe is the more refined of the three....if would be the clear choice.

Exposure is known for a very immediate and involving midrange liquidity and that is completely musical and involving with great transparency and insight to the music as whole, not unlike Naim but not the same either. The Classe is more typical hi fi, rich with a sweet rolled off top end. The Exposure 2010S is one of the most musical amps out there that I have heard. I didn't think it was like any Audiolab gear I have heard as I hear the Audiolab as dry, the Exposure as liquid.
So I think I'm leaning toward the Classe, especially given the cost differential (about 2x). Any thought about which of those speakers would be the best match for that?
Also, to throw another variable in, I'd consider changing direction entirely and getting a local pair of Paradigm Active 20v1, and running that from a B&K PT-3II.
Really appreciate your thoughts.
