Desktop AMP/DAC Opinions

Any opinions on single, compact, integrated DAC/AMP units?

I am far from an audiophile (i dont use words like transparency or weight when describing audio equipment). my primary headphones are akg 533 pros and meze 99 noirs and i listen to a random selection of music. i currently run a garage1217 headphone amp i built from a kit, a modi 2 , and a grace digital 2.1 amp. i like the features i have, but want to simplify...and to be honest i am over the tube/opamp hybrid

i have been considering the nad d 3045, the psaudio sprout100, and the denon pma60 (or really its replacement in the lineup). anyone with experience with them?

also open to other suggestions, i am looking for a single unit with plenty of features. gotta be 2.1 (passive sub), approx 45 watts/ch at 8ohm, bluetooth (with aptx), and have a heapdphone amp...and seeing that about 5% of the worlds audio catalog is true hd audio, that isnt a requirement either. oh...vertical mounting would be nice, but not required

thanks for any insights
