I agree, the NAD 316BEE is a great little IA. I had the v1 for a while and it was quite capable with any of the speakers I owned at the time. Obviously the v2 has the built-in phone preamp but I'm not sure of the quality.
I also owned the LS50s for a while and very much regret selling them. They're not perfect but they do a lot of things well especially for someone like me who mostly listens to music (bump in the upper midrange/low treble).
I would also consider the Music Fidelity M2si although it is a no frills analog only IA. You would need a phono stage as well as a streamer. It's on close-out right now.
