MHDT Orchid v Denafrips Pontus

I've had an Orchid in my system for going on 3 years now. It's a great DAC, does exactly what I bought it for, which is present music in a natural, non-fatiguing way. I've tube rolled with it, used a couple of different digital cables, one of which did provide slightly more detail (Audio Art D-1SE2). I'm Denafrips curious though and would like to see if someone has had both. From reviews, I'm wondering if the Pontus would keep all of that R2R goodness and present more detail than the Orchid. Thanks!


I asked the same question a couple of weeks ago and went to the source. Unfortunately, the guy that was doing them, known to audio forums as "Grannyring", is no longer doing them. LTA will do the cap replacement portion for $650

That's bad news... the cap replacement is probably 50% of the total "GR" mod?
