I haven't heard the Border Patrol DAC, but I don't doubt that it sounds really good. It's built around a TDA1543 DAC chip, and I've got a dB Audiolabs Tranquility SE DAC which is built around the same chip. It was this DAC that set me down the NOS/R2R DAC path. The Tranquility DACs are out of production, but can be found used in the $500 dollar range. I still use mine as a backup DAC and/or as a HP DAC.
Well I have Jupiter output caps in mine. Not quite Duelund, but perhaps not far off. I wonder what some Duelund silver bypass caps would do for the Tranquility, though. I have Duelund bypass in both my Don Sachs pre and my speaker crossovers, so perhaps should open up the DAC next. But yeah that AM SE DAC seems to have some very high parts quality. Intriguing!
