So Will... Don't keep us waiting - did you like the Orpheus 2 even better?
 The O2 does a very good job, especially for the money, but you can of course pay more and get more.. I really dig the HD650 with Woo WA2 and Beyerdynamic A1, to mention some. 
This 120V PSU that came with my Massdrop O2 amp, but living in Europe, I have no use of (but Massdrop didn't think of that...). Giving it away for shipping costs to the US.    Looks like it is this one, but says model number YP-053. Straight connector.   http://dgxingyuan.manufacturer.globalsources.com/si/6008830434307/pdtl/AC-AC/1132605438/15v-ac-500ma-AC-AC-adapters.htm   Unused in box.

Now you made me very curious about the 1540, which I have yet to hear 😃
 Thanks :) Hehe - I was waiting for someone to catch me on that cable - Couldn't find the stock one... Still - I am pretty sure I would have made the same observations - the upgrade cable didn't really change the HD650's character that much. But I do not think I descriebed thre HD600 as lesser than the HD650 - but I usually preferred it du to its laid back smoothness, something the HD650 has that seems quite unique. Some love it , some hate it - but I am a HD650 guy :) But...
 That's what I think. It is hard to predict the perfect synergy with dac's. Also, the variation in sound signature is more relevant in less expensive dacs in my experience.  
 So - am I understanding you correctly if I think you say is you might want a colored/mid-centric DAC?  I haven't heard the Questyle, but tend to find most modern DACs to sound quite similar with regrades to sound signature - because - relatively speaking - they are all trying to be neutral. They vary mostly on detail retrieval and speed in the different frequency areas,but they mostly have a quite similar tonal balance.  FWIW - I guess what I am saying is that it is more...
 So - what is your personal taste?
Ahh - got the WA2 out from its shameful storagein a closet, fired it up and plugged in the HD800. What a bliss. I love this amp!
