With the GAIA installed it’s taken my sound to a higher level.
Hi Alvin, Received the GAIA. I have a DCS bridge feeding the GAIA via AES. Output from GAIA via I2S to an upgraded PS Audio DSD. I have bi-amped powerful, resolving amplification, feeding B and W 800 D3 speakers. Plus 2 subwoofers. The sound is even more dynamic, the bass and midrange are more clear. The top end is sharper which brings the sound stage into greater focus. My system sound presentation was very good before the GAIA. With the GAIA installed it’s taken my sound to
Really a great DAC!
Hi Alvin, Thanks for your follow-up. Yes, I’ve been very pleased with this DAC. Has really made a nice improvement to my digital front ends (BluSound Node and Marantz 6007 CDP). The rest of my system is a PrimaLuna Dialogue HP Integrated and a pair of Focal Aria 936’s with an REL sub. I find myself using the streamer routinely now thanks to the Pontus ii. Really a great DAC!

the focus is exclusively on the music
Dear Alvin, A Christmas and New Year's greeting from Bergen, Norway What has really made a difference to the quality of music playback here, has been the introduction of the Denafrips BIC500. With both the Pontus DAC, Hermes DDC and Hestia preamp connected to the BIC500, the focus is exclusively on the music. But (yes, there is a but), the real transformation happened only after dedicating my best power cable (IsoTek Ascension) from the BIC500 to the Pontus! I know that Vinsh
Honestly, the Venus II (12th) still manages to amaze me.
Some reviews mention that the Venus II sounds a bit harsh when used for the first time, but I did not hear that. Actually, right out of the box the Venus II already sounded better than the (not too shabby) built-in DAC of my Mark Levinson. And as breaking-in progresses, the sound still keeps developing day by day. Honestly, the Venus II (12th) still manages to amaze me; what a great device it is, at an unbelievable price-point! This is where I play music with: - Roon Nucleus
My search for the 'perfect' DAC is over.
Excellent...thank you Alvin! I'm really enjoying my Pontus II DAC I purchased a couple of weeks ago. I moved my Ares II to my smaller system. My search for the 'perfect' DAC is over. Both are phenomenal DACs! Main system: Parasound Halo pre-amp and amp, Denon SACD player, Rega P3 TT, Vincent phono pre and Legacy Audio speakers. Second system: Vincent tubed CDP, Vincent tubed Integrated amp, Ares II and Paradigm speakers. Credit: Gerald L. @ USA PRODUCT INFO: https://www.dena
