Needing new desktop speaker setup

Anything better for cheaper than what I've picked, or any alternatives that you'd suggest that'd be a better fitment for a PC / desk setup with occasional bluetooth youtube music from my phone while the wife cleans.

SMSL SD-793II DAC with headphones amp - $65
Dayton DTA-2.1BT2 2x50w / 1x100w 2.1 BT amp - $85
Dayton B452-AIR speakers - $45
Dayton Downfiring 6.5" Passive subwoofer kit - $80
Monoprice $16 cans, but will upgrade later on, already own

Total cost - About $277 after tax / shipping from parts express.

My question, anywhere in there to save money? I need a better than onboard audio DAC, amplified if possible headphones output, and decent enough speakers, and bluetooth capability if at all possible. Subwoofer may or may not be needed depending on amp and speakers used (but size is a concern on my desk). But for a subwoofer, I'm really wanting something as minimal as possible as its going under my desk, which is only a big enough square opening to fit my chair under it, and there's solid wood on all 3 sides. Dayton MKSX4 would be another sub choice I was considering (and really wanting) but was $28 more.

Trying to get the best WAF possible here.
