Product Description

Pathos Converto is a high performance DAC and headphone amplifier combined and shares some features of the cutting-edge acclaimed InTransfer from which it draws inspiration.

Pathos's latest DAC, the Converto is committed to meeting the demands of music lovers who want to get the very best out of their digital source.

Even with its compact dimensions, the Converto supports an entirely balanced circuitry and provides sufficient input options such as a coaxial S/PDIF, optical S/PDIF, type B USB and analog line RCA.

The integrated amplifier in the Pathos Coverto DAC is designed with headphone-lovers in mind. There are two knobs on the rear panel that allows the user to correct the gain and find the best balance for each headphone.

Press Reviews

  • 'Pathos has a simple approach to design: no remote, no display and no labels. Just two buttons: one for power, one for inputs. And four LED strips' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
  • 'It has a no frills approach to design, and although some may yearn for a display and remote, we never felt we were missing out. Design aside, it's the smooth, luxuriously detailed and weighty sound that draws us to this DAC. The Converto is a charming and engaging listen that has us yearning for more.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine June 2015)
  • 'The new Pathos Converto may not have the Italian manufacturer’s signature look (no valves!), but this DAC has Pathos blood running through it.' (What Hi-Fi Magazine July 2015)
