German Physiks at the CES 2007, Las Vegas, USA
This was our first outing withour new US distributor Signals SuperFi. Their president Chris Sommovigo assembled a system comprising the Continuum Caliburn turntable fitted with their Cobra arm, Boulder electronics, Chris’ own Stereovox cables and our PQS 402 loudspeakers. We exhibited in the Venetian meeting rooms where despite a difficult acoustic we still managed to impress quite a few people. One of whom was a reporter from the online high-end audio magazine Stereomojo. He was so impressed with what he heard that the magazine awarded our room their “Best Sound at CES” award. Commenting on a Louis Armstrong record we played they wrote:
“If I told you that Mr.Armstrong was “in the room”, it would be no big deal. Lots of systems can achieve that illusion. No, what I was hearing was much more than that – I was witnessing genius. Louis was telling the story in a way that was compelling and ravishing. Spell binding. His phrasing and articulation was astounding. Moving. Engrossing. I forgot that I was listening to a turntable, speakers or any other contraption. I forgot my aching feet and lack of sleep. I forgot I was at CES. I was only hearing the mastery of a great artist delivering a great song. I was transfixed.
Like I said, I’ve never heard anything like it, not at CES, not at Rocky Mountain Fest, because it was much more than just “hearing”. It was a sensory odyssey.”

German Physiks Borderland Mk IV Launched
The German Physiks Borderland MkIV was launched at the Top Audio Show in Milan in September. The Borderland has been a consistent major seller for us since it was first launched in 1993 and we are confident that the improved standard set by the Mk IV version will enable it to maintain this position. The Borderland MkIV uses a new cabinet and bass system based on the design used on the HRS120. The result is a fast and tuneful bass with no boominess. A revised crossover provides improved dynamics and greater transparency in the mid and treble regions. To quote Luca Parlato of our Italian distributor LP Audio, “This is the speaker to have in my opinion”.
