To commemorate DENAFRIPS’s 12 years of digital audioexcellence, the most popular best selling Pontus II 12th Anniversary Edition features several performance enhancements at components level that might not bevisible by the naked eyes but certainly audible for the seasoned and trained audiophiles' ears. 

The original Pontus II DAC shattered the expectations of what a R-2R Ladder DAC could be. Pontus II 12th-1 superior sound quality enhancement took it to another level.


The chassis is made of massive aluminium plates, securely fastened and no visible sign of bolts from the front panel and top cover. The all-aluminium enclosure, double up as shielding and anti-resonance, the criteria for audiophile.

The Pontus II 12TH-1 is a true balanced, dual mono R-2R network arrays DAC. Each channel is equipped with independent high-speed FPGA to control the 24-bit decoding by means of 4 sets of 0.01% R-2R network. This design has very small linear error, high decoding speed, low digital noise, not only to ensure that the audio signal is low distortion, but also to ensure a very low background music noise; allows listener to enjoy the true music with dark background.
