Re: How much power do I need? (How big an amp?)
Well, 3W is a very tiny amount of power. And there may be a degree of 'over egging' that figure - there so often is. 3W would produce what I'd call 'conversational level' sound. But, as you say, you are listening in the nearfield, and that may (just) be sufficient.
