The Pontus II is a beast and performance is in line with reviews, ("excellent")
I have attached a few photos of my "desktop system." Mind you this is a 96" desk. I started with a 21" iMac and Martin Logan 15 speakers, a schiit Vidor and a Chord Mojo, no Subwoofer. It has grown into what you see.
Streaming source is a 27" iMac (5K) & just underneath that is the "Denafrips Pontus II." Bottom left is a "Rel t7i" and right of that is the Schiit Freya+. Directly in front of that is the "Willsenton R8" with mostly stock tubes (for now). Speakers are Buchardt S400.
I stream "Tidal" and just today Tidal offered their subscribers "Hifi" setting at no extra charge..
The Pontus II is a beast and performance is in line with reviews, ("excellent").. There is a deeper soundstage, improved clarity, more presence, a sense of realism and bass is enhanced. Thanks for all you do in the audiophile community...
