Review of the BorderPatrol P21EXD Amplifier
by John Richardson of Part Time Audiophile
Broadly speaking, it’s hard to fault the BorderPatrol P21 EXD amplifier. It’s one of the most beguilingly neutral and honest amplifiers I have ever experienced. As I mentioned before, it took me some time to adjust to its uniquely open presentation and fully learn to appreciate it. It’s still kind of amusing to me that my non-audiophile friends “got it” right away, and yet it took me a long time to fully appreciate what they were trying to tell me!
Yes, the BorderPatrol P21 EXD is expensive. It’s above my pay grade. However, if it sounds like an amp that would check your boxes, I think it’s definitely worth the coin. I’m just pleased that there are talented designers and artisans like Gary out there who remain committed to building gear like this… It’s truly a labor of love to produce these works of art for audio perfectionists to enjoy for a lifetime.
Kudos to you, good sir, for a job well done!
