Hi! I'm using the O2+ODAC (revB) from one of the drop 4 or 5 months ago and it great. I have the HD800, Audioengine A5+ and Shure SE535 and that DAC/AMP have no problem with those. However I have to turn the DAC volume to 75% sometime when using my HD800 but is all good. Also, its just $199 which is fit your pocket. Sorry about my bad English.
I've heard really good things about that combo. Have you tried Schiit Modi/Magni before? I've heard that might be a better combo
I've got a Schitt Stack with the Magni2/Modi2 and it's excellent. Bang for your buck is off the charts. I listen mostly to my TH-X00 on it, but it should have more than enough horsepower for your Q701. Also they look pretty good on the desk; clean lines, nothing but a volume knob and 1/4" output on the amp and power indicator lights for each on the front. The power switch on the Magni has a nice satisfying chunk to it as well.
Great little stack.
