I'm flattered, but I don't feel competent to sit in judgement.
As regards the "hybrid" amp, a brief anecdote:
Back in the late 80s, I used to buy audio CDs from a specialty shop in Sudbury, MA. They sold CD players as well as the disks. The first time I saw an expensive Luxman unit with a vacuum tube output stage, I couldn't restrain my laughter. The shop owner acted a little hurt, and said that it was a way to lead traditional audiophiles into using CDs. (He didn't sell CD mass rings or green markers to suppress laser reflections from the edges of the CDs, though.) I guess that I was, and still am, biased.
The Hybrid inverts that: tube preamp, feeding a Class D (switching mode, sometimes falsely called "digital") output stage. A pretty low-power Class D output, at that: 12W into 4 Ohms? On the plus side, it has a sub output.
The SMSL amp is tiny and inexpensive. It's a class D that makes lots of power for its size. My main worry would be that it may be cheap, as well as inexpensive. I might buy it, as I'm cheap.
I might have preferred the Onkyo if I could deal with its size, but I'm not sure that it includes a crossover for its outputs. Not sure how much value I'd assign to its "high res DACs", as I'm happy with 16bit/44.1kHz stereo audio.
If I was looking to replace a Klipsch Promedia set, I might replace it with the same thing. I see that Amazon is still selling them ($124, free shipping). (I thought that the Promedia was off the market, but I was mistaken.) Better speakers are available, but the Promedia is a good value. That isn't really what the OP was asking, though.
