Has anyone tried the Fiio Kunlun with these?

Hi all, sorry to dig up a (possibly) old thread, and also side track it a little bit.  I'm looking to get a desktop amp - Hifiman EF5 or Schiit Lyr kind of amp.  How will the Westone 4r deal with these amps?  is there anything I should worry about as far as using a power source like those two?

i think the w4r should be fine with them. are you specifically looking for a desktop amp or are you considering portable amps also.

 

i would highly reguard the Ibasso pb2 with the w4r. you can roll the opamps and buffers, its UBER powerful, 2500mw+2500mw, it can double as a portable and powerful enough for desktop use...its can also be used balanced. and the high gain on the amp balanced is +20 this amp can drive anything.it has about the same voltage swing as the rsa sr-71b. just saying..

I'm pretty open to what amps I use.  As of now, the amp is planned to be attached to my PC, so I never really thought about using a portable amp.  My main purpose for going with a desktop amp is because I might have a pretty decent deal on a EF-5.  If that deal falls though, I'll definitely take your advice and look into the iBasso pb2 and other portable amps.

I own HiFiman RE-0 IEMs, but that's it from their product line for now.  My cousin has HE-5s and they sound awesome.  Seriously considering their HE line of full size headphones.

I'm currently pairing my W4 with an IPodTouch 4thGen... Do you I need an amp? What should I expect from it when I add it to my rig? Thanks!

What do I expect with such a pairing (Westone 4 & ALO V2)? Newbie question still feeling his way around.
