Border Patrol's founder Gary Dewes established himself in the UK by proving how much better other companies' amps sounded with his power supplies. Now located in Maryland, Border Patrol builds some of the best-sounding 300B amplifiers available today. The Border Patrol DAC manages to do with the classic non-oversampling TDA1543 chip what their amps do with the 300B tube. By focusing on power, simple and effective circuit design, and exhaustive listening during the development process, the Border Patrol DAC subverts the assumptions about what this chip is - and is not - capable of. The result is a reference redbook DAC and one of the best values in digital audio.
