Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Border Patrol

Yes, it is NOS as are the other DACs I have own and liked, but I am not an engineering, so won't say it is because or only because it has a NOS typology. It also has a tube rectified power supply and was designed by one of the most creative and respected designers in the tube audio world. Exactly what contributes to its sound in what ways and to what degrees is perhaps unknowable. What I can say is that as a music lover first and audio enthusiast second, in my system, I hear what the original poster seems to be looking for.

The system (headphone only). FLAC files on Roon nucleus to Windows 10 PC laptop as Roon endpoint to the Border Patrol DAC SEi via USB to Monolith Liquid Platinum headphone amp to Audeze LCD-X cans. I like it so much, I am tempted to get another one for one of my speaker-based systems.

That's my two cents, given freely and worth what you paid for it.
