Thanks for your replies! I'll look into the Marantz and Emotive Audio you've suggested and if nothing else, it'll educate and sharpen my focus a bit.
Tonsofun - I really wanted the Sprout to work for me as I think its an ideal solution save for the 50Hz cutoff. The Altecs measure flat to 38Hz and have a significant drop off below that. I know it doesn't seem like much but I really don't want the amplifier dictating the frequency range - usually, its the other way 'round. If I'm wrong, please correct me as I have used PS Audio gear in the past and wouldn't hesitate to try it again.
Thanks again guys!
Not knocking the Sprout but I see its niche on someone's desk powering speakers with 3" or 4" woofer cones and a decent but easy to drive headphone. The built in 50 Hz cutoff makes sense there, not so much with full range or near full-range gear. I think you're making a good choice crossing that one off the list. Best of luck with whatever you decide on!
