    Pontus II 12TH Anniversary Edition

    • True NOS R-2R DAC
    • Enhanced & fine tuned Power Supply
    • Gold-plated screws & conductors for power transfer from PSU to the DAC module
    • Upgraded 12th Anniv. Firmware

    The PONTUS II 12th is a true balanced, dual mono R-2R Ladder Network Arrays DAC. Each channel is equipped with independent high-speed FPGA to facilitate the digital signal decoding by means of 4 sets of 0.01% R-2R network. The choice of such design yield very small linearity error, high decoding speed, low digital noise, not only to ensure that the audio signal is of very low distortion, but also to ensure a very low background music noise; allow listener to enjoy the true music with dark background. 

    All digital input are FIFO buffered and reclocked by the on board FEMTO crystal oscillators. The excellent rejection of word-clock jitter makes DENAFRIPS DAC less reliance to the source equipment clock quality. PONTUS can transform your consumer grade computer, CDPlayer to high-end sound quality.

    Non-Oversampling R-2R DAC /Signal fed to the DAC remain in its native sampling rate without additional processing. Pontus II 12th is a true NOS DAC.
