The amp I use is Woo Audio WA33. It has amazing sound. I have a Feliks Euphoria(OTL) Anniversary Edition coming. Going by power I wouldn't go below 2 watts. The ZMF Pendant is an other option does 2-3 watts at 50 ohms if I remember.


2 watts total, or 2 wpc?

I know it is not in the league of the WA33, but I really like my Bryston BHA-1. Tons of power especially if you use balanced cables. Built like a tank. 20 year, yes, Twenty Year warranty! Very tube-ish sound... highly recommended!

the milo has plenty of power, more than the formula s which was designed for the 1266 and is wonderful with it...power itself can be misleading some amps do not work well with some HP's for whatever reason...I had the milo some time ago and found no problem driving the 1266 but didnt find it a good match

Thanks guys, these are the answers I was waiting for. It looks like the power isn't the only factor here...

Hey you're preaching to the converted. Bryston is my favorite audio company and my second bha1 is showing up today after a 5 week wait for the build.

Had some good news today from Joe and THX Stereo that my 1266 TCs with the upgraded awesome headband had just been shipped to me. Just as well, got this speaker amp cable adapter project started with my trusted local DIY'er. Fun times ahead despite everything going on.

Yes mine should have the new headband as well since they were finished last week. Stoked.

Nice. What speaker amp are you going to be using?
