Instead of the powered speakers, you might look into this for going retro:

I heard the combo sounds pretty sweet. Plus, you get to buy and swap tubes which is pretty cheap and fun. I have a tube preamp going into two amps to biamp my speakers. I spent about $500 or so on my whole setup though. It sounds incredibly good.... I play FLAC files on mine, no vinyl. With a phono amp, I bet it this setup sounds really good with a tube preamp.
