Pretty new to buying audio gear. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good pair of headphones to use with this DAC/Amp combo? Should I stick with a 35 ohm set of headphones, or can I find something with more resistance that will work well?
Also, does the output switch over automatically from speakers to the headphone when I plug headphones in?

Unimak,
I've used the AKG K7XX (62 ohm) with our YARO2 and it gets painfully loud. Based on the amplifier we use I wouldn't use a 600 ohm pair but it should handle up to 150 ohm without significant volume loss. When you plug headphones in it will automatically switch to the headphone output and stop audio going to the speaker outputs.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. I'll have to take a look at subwoofers too, it might be worth it to pick one of those up as well sometime.

Hello, I know this is an old post, but I am interested in the YARO2, and was wondering if you think it could handle a 250 ohm headphone decently well?

In my opinion it wouldn't do well with a 250 ohm headphone, even at 125-150 ohms I find it's lost some steam already.
