New Grado Drivers, if I invest maybe an Amp/DAC?

I'm thinking about investing in these for my Grado 325is. Anyone have experience with the Magnums? Since apparently these are replacing them, I would be interested in making my Grado's a little "powerful" I suppose/sound even better.

I love the way they sound now. Currently I mainly use them with my Cowon D3 with no Amp/DAC. If I do make the upgrade maybe I should go ahead and invest in a Amp/DAC too? I would like to splurge eventually on some Schiit audio gear (Bifrost/Asgaard or Valhalla) and have that hooked up to either my PC (Asus STX) or D3.

Thoughts?

Need measurements. There are none. Mods can make a headphone sound much much worse. e.g. the highly overhyped 'Thunderpants' mod.

If you like the Grado sound, I'd much rather invest in the Allesandro MS Pro.
