I really enjoy my recently purchased Pontus II. First of all, I was very impressed how quick you were able to deliver: just one week from Singapore to Switzerland - unbelievable!
The Pontus II is a very pleasing sounding DAC. It works very well with my transport (SotM SMS-200 Ultra with USB-reclocker and powersupply).
Right out of the box I noticed a deeper and wider soundstage compared to the DAC integrated into my ATC SIA-2 100. I like the slightly „analog“ sounding signature of this DAC.
I am fully convinced of the quality of Denafrips products and would love to hear my ATC SCM-50 PTSL with the Athena/Apollo combination. I saw you use this speakers in your demo room.
They sound great with my small ATC Amp, but I think the Apollo would reveal their full potential :-)
