With the availability of USB connectivity, it becomes easier to pair various devices like an Amp, DAC or even headphones without worrying about drivers or any additional piece of software.

The longevity of your headphone/devices is strongly affected by its build quality, and a poorly built pair is more susceptible to breaking in a short amount of time. This is even more important for the listener who travels with their headphones/devices frequently, as wear and tear are more probable.Headphones/devices built with metal and metal components usually tend to last longer and can withstand wear and tear and potential damage.

A TRUE BALANCED, DUAL-MONO R-2R DAC, AT A NOT-SO PREMIUM PRICE

Denafrips PONTUS II is a premium DAC that adopts many technologies from the Terminator DAC. This is done to achieve the highest quality of sound while keeping in mind the cost constraints. This no-compromise approach trickles to the exterior chassis, which is seamless having no visible bolts. DENAFRIPS have even upgraded the DSP board and enhanced several other aspects of PONTUS II.

Headphone-Zone-Denafrips-PONTUS II

HIGH DECODING SPEED, LOW DISTORTION FOR A HIGH-END SOUND QUALITY HIGH DECODING SPEED, LOW DISTORTION FOR A HIGH-END SOUND QUALITY

The Denafrips PONTUS II is a true balanced, dual-mono R-2R network array DAC. What this means is each channel is equipped with an independent high-speed FPGA to control the decoding by means of 4 sets of 0.01% via the R-2R network. This design has a very small linear error, high decoding speed, low digital noise. This not only ensures that the audio signal has low distortion but also to ensure a very low background music noise. All digital inputs in the PONTUS II are FIFO buffered and re-clocked by the onboard FEMTO clocks. This excellent rejection of word-clock jitter makes Denafrips PONTUS II DAC less reliant on the source equipment clock quality.

ALUMINIUM CHASSIS AND ENCAPSULATED LINEAR POWER SUPPLY

The chassis for the Denafrips PONTUS II is made of sturdy aluminium plates, securely fastened with an internal bracket and no visible sign of bolt from the front panel and top cover. The all-aluminium enclosure doubles up as shielding and anti-resonance which is an important criteria for audiophiles. Denafrips further enhanced the device with a linear power supply design compared to the ARES II. This power supply is encapsulated in a thick metal alloy, equipped with dual o-core transformers, completely isolated super linear regulator, multistage power supply for digital and analogue sections, ensuring low noise, high availability power supply to the DAC.

EASY ACCESSIBLE FRONT PANEL

This includes input switching, phase invert, choosing between oversampling or non-oversampling mode, mute button and a mode button that doubles as a filter button, toggling between slow or sharp digital filters.
