April 2019: Borderland Mk IV receives Best in Show Award


Jonathan Valin of the leading US audiophile magazine The Absolute Sound has given our Borderland Mk IV loudspeakers his Best in Show Award in his report of the Axpona 2019 Show.

In his report Mr. Valin wrote:

Driven by the company's own Emperor electronics, German Physiks’ $37,250 Borderlands loudspeaker, with omnidirectional DDD driver (crossing over to a down-firing 12” cone at 190Hz) in an elaborately braced hexagonal cabinet, sounded very open and quite delicate without any thinness or vaporousness. Closer to realistic than most of the other stuff I heard in Chicago, the Borderland was excellent on a Louis Armstrong CD. Excellent all around (so to speak)!

Our thanks to Mr. Valin for taking the time to visit our room in what was a very busy show.

Our thanks also to Larry Borden of our US distributor Distinctive Stereo LLC, shown here with the system, for his excellent show set-up.
