Pionner SX1050 Receiver as headphone amplifier for Sennheiser HD800

Iam using a Pionner SX 1050 receiver ( 70's) as a headphone amp for Sennheiser HD 800.

Should i think upgrading for a more recent headphone amp or it is a bad idea considering that the Pioneer is fantastic ?

Iam losing something for not having a dedicated amp like WO AUDIO WA2 or the Sennheiser HDVD 800 instead of the Pioneer SX 1050 ?

i think vintage receivers drive the headphones off the main circuit through some resisters (new receivers may have a separate chip-based amp for headphones).
