WOW I'm shocked, it is unbelievably good

Dear Alvin,

A few words from a very happy Pontus II owner

For the last 40 years I have had music and HIFI equipment as a hobby and I have had a lot of different equipment over time and thought that with my current setup, I could be happy for a very long time.


but I could not control my curiosity and bought a Pontus II.



WOW I'm shocked, it is unbelievably good, it beats the expensive built-in DAC in my amplifier on all aspects.


Pontus II is so nice and musical to listen to, it's hard to describe but it just sounds right and your ears relax and you can play music all day long without listening fatigue.




My setup:

  • Integrated Amplifiers: The Gryphon Diablo 120 with build in DAC. Rega Elex-r for playing vinyl only

  • Speakers: Audiovector SR3 Arreté RAW ltd. edition

  • CD transport / player: Cambridge CXC currently in use, and a Sony XA555ES & XA5400ES which is packed down at the moment

  • Streamer: Cambridge CXN & IFI Zen stream to my 1TB NAS with music

  • Powerfilter: Audioquest Niagara 1200 mostly for having the surge protection

  • Cabling: Home made from various pro-manufactures


Cables matters but as an Engineer I don’t believe in all the hype of the super high-end and priced cables. it seems that even some High-End brands has more interest in selling expensive cables than well-designed equipment…!! Profit?

I have a dedicated room in my house for my hobby so I don’t have to think of WAF etc. As you can see in the attached photos of my setup

With Kind regards

Michael @ Denmark
