Any advantage to having a bigger trafo on headphone amp?

I love my little Schiit "Magni" headphone amp and have no basic complaints, but might having bigger transformer offer any performance advantage? It's a sweet circuit design-- a discrete transistor power amp that puts out around 1W into low-Z phones. The manufacturer's transformer is a smallish wall-wart that measures 18.2VAC no-load and the nameplate says is 16VAC.
