I have heard nothing but good things about the SMS-1.
I am under the impression that it "outputs" only mono. Since I have not used one I do not know if that is true or not.
And of course it is arguable that bass below a certain frequency need be in stereo.
But for the most fastidious among us, I might suggest an additional alternative (and it may be difficult to find) but one could use the following:
1) The new STEREO AntiMode 8033S
2) The NHT X-2 (now discontinued)
This combination offers a very nice group of features and adjustments.
What do you think? (I have seen you make favorable comments on the X-2 before)
See any downsides/upsides?
