Detailed Sound, Discreet Design

The YARO2 features acoustic-grade MDF cabinets, 3.5-inch paper cone drivers, and 1-inch silk-dome tweeters, complete with a black piano-gloss finish. The speakers produce clear, natural sound, and the interface—which has a single knob—offers ultimate user-friendliness. Simply rotate the knob for volume control, push to cycle through the three inputs, or push and hold for two second to activate or deactivate standby mode.
