What do you mean by "can drive them"?
I mean, a $30 T-amp or a cheap age old class A/B amp from ebay can drive the K1000s.
Not that good though although a modded T-amp is listenable.
I've once had a Prehead and it drove the K1000s to a decent loudness level, but I wouldn't call it a dream team.RichterDi drives his K1000 sometimes by two (!) Operas in a row.Still not very loud, but doesn't sound bad.
My former Rudistor RPX-33 dualmono wasn't bad.Did lack oomph (a bit), but was musical and that's most important.The Audiovalve RKV is great, but that's no secret and an exception.
That's it.Any other headphone amp I've tried over the years did lack the power or sucked for other reasons.
All in all I'd say most amps originally designed for ordinary headphones aren't suited for the K1000.Get a good speaker amp or a RKV.
