The unit is simple to use with two buttons on the front panel enabling stand-by mode and input selection. A blue led on the upper front part also displays the latter function.


Entirely handmade in Italy, the minimal construction conveys elegance with aluminium on both painting and frame, there is also a carved Pathos logo on the upper part. Featuring compact dimensions and a clear design, Converto Evo can be combined with In The Groove and AmpliD for a perfect digital or phono audio system setup.

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)
