Manunta EVO DAC 3 Review

What is it?

Manunta is an offshoot of Italian audio company, M2Tech. The Manunta EVO DAC 3 is a balanced Digital to Analogue Converter which has XLR outputs and single ended RCA outputs. Input wise it can deal with RCA S/PDIF, Toslink and I2S, plus USB. This is also an aptX capable Bluetooth DAC.

Manunta adopt the direct model of HiFi selling and this DAC is currently available via their website here. I found this Manunta EVO DAC 3 to offer a lot of utility, so far as connections and features as I make clear in my review, and for what is possible with the direct selling model. Sound quality is competitive and the unit is also well made, if not luxuriously so.
