Old Receiver - where to plug in? (pics)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

This is a Denon AVR-2000 I just got.

 

I am trying to figure out the best way to drive headphones with these.

Right now, I'm just using the front headphone jack.

 

Should I be running headphones out of something in the back?  I assume since the back plugs are what I use for speakers, they provide more power?  Right now, I only have HD555's plugged in the front, so they sound fine, but I'm getting HD600 or HE-500's soon, so I want to figure out which outputs gives  me the cleanest/best power.

 

Thank you =)

Headphone Jack spec is "Maximum headphone output: 284 mW (8 ohms)"

Also, here is a clearer picture of the back I found online:

Just plug the headphones into the headphone jack on the front of the receiver.

Usually when you plug headphones into a receiver, the receiver's speaker amplifier(s) stop driving the speakers and switch over to driving the headphones.

Otherwise you can buy an external headphone amplifier and connect it to the analog RCA output jack on the back of the receiver.
