A new level with the 1.4 Pontus II software upgrade
My system has reached a new level with the 1.4 Pontus II software upgrade
I went to one of my local jazz clubs in the San Francisco Bay Area. It’s called Yoshis. I saw the group ‘The Cookers’. They were rocking a very complex sound. It was dynamic and exciting. Just what I love about live music.
I got that same feeling on my system after I upgraded my Pontus II to the 1.4 upgrade. The bass was deep and solid. The cymbals really sparkle. The side whacks on the drums really had impact. The vocals had a smoothness that was missing for me in the 1.3 upgrade. Trumpets and Saxophones have that real feeling. No haze to the sound The overall sound has a realness to it I hadn’t experienced before.
It sounds louder. But when I used my sound meter on it, I was only reaching peaks of 91 db. It’s just so much more dynamic.
I haven’t fully broken in the sound. I have listened to only a dozen songs. I can’t imagine how much more it will get better after I put 50 hours on it for my break in period.
The 1.4 upgrade is highly recommended by me. I hope you hear what I hear from my system. Here is a couple of pictures of my system. And my speakers.
