Speaking as a guy who has both a wet darkroom and nice big Epson printer, you never get the same "look" from one media to another. They are, and always will be different, and you have to decide which "look" you like best. There is nothing wrong with that - IMO, it's exactly the same choice as making the choice between watercolour or oil paint. Which look do you like better?
Now in my case, I personally find some images - at least to me, look better off the Epson, and some look better from a wet print. Believe it or not, the topic or the subject of the photograph can dictate which medium looks best, at least to me it does. You might find that too. try and see for fun. Here is an experiment you might try - do two, 8x10 prints, one wet, one from your Epson. Don't try to make them look the same in terms of sharpness and tonality, do the opposite. Do the best you can inside each medium. Show them around later to your firends, family etc, and see which one peopel seem to liek best, and ask why - if they know. It's fun.
one last thing, something I would suggest to all beginners, don't let the "fanboys" out there on the internet suck you into one more totally useless debate over which looks better. That is like arguing which flavour of ice cream is better - vanilla or chocolate? When I go hiking I take both my digital SLRs and my 4x5 film camera. I use both too.
good luck, and count yourself lucky that we are in a time when you can choose either medium.
