Is the wall wart getting hot/warm when you have the 1/4" cable plugged in? All wall warts are not created equal, some are just a transformer and diode rectifiers, others have voltage regulation and thermal protection and other circuitry.
54V volts from the secondary sound like to may have cooked the transformer.

Would amperage have something to do with the drop in voltage over a longer run? Just thinking out loud, don't know if that has anything to do with it. But, don't different devices need more amps to get proper power depending on how much resistance it sees? maybe cable doesn't pose that much resistance to matter, but if the amps are super small that may be an issue in the long run or future.
