Hey, I was wondering if anyone with a good knowledge of the interplay between amp "stats" and the md's could give me an opinion about how well they should be working?

That's from my Hifiman EF2A. I just received my MD's yesterday from a fellow forum goer, but...they don't sound all that great to me. Actually, I think I like my DT770's (80ohm) more. Maybe my expectations were too high, or maybe I've just developed a...taste for the sound of the 770's, but after seeing people compare the mad dogs to such high quality can's, it makes me think something must be wrong in my setup; and obviously, after reading through this thread more and more, I think it might be the amp. This close to buying gifts for Christmas, the MD's gave my piggy bank a pretty good shake down, but I'm thinking about adding in a Schiit Magni after funding becomes available. Would it be a worthwhile step up?
