Well I use my Marantz SR4400 to Drive my bookshelf Speakers and I plug my headphones (Dt 770 Pro) into the Headphone jack. So is my Marantz a headphone Amp as well?

It can be a very decent buit-in amp. Better than a lot of so called "dedicated amps".
|low imp cans can sound very nice from a reciever (remember the speaker imp. is 4-8 ohmns) - but high imp. cans don't fare to well.|
Many receivers/integrated amps have very good headphone performance, whether those who have invested hundreds (thousands?) in dedicated head amps want to believe that or not. But don't take my word for it. Use your Marantz as a reference. Only order headphone amps from stores or manufacturers with liberal return policies and do the comparing for yourself. Blind. It's the only way to judge gear.
