Default Mono blocks for woofers: Ncore, AMS or ?

I am using the digital crossover of my Devialet amp for my DIY speakers. Mid/highs are fed by the Devialet amp but for the woofers I am using the low pass analog out (RCA) and using Kharma MP150 amplifiers to drive the woofer. The woofers are Accuton S280 rated 93dB/2.83V 6.6Ω 150W max and I am quite happy with their sound in my large room.
The Kharma MP150 are Hypex UcD based and where much better than the Hypex UCD 180 when I tested these almost a decade ago. But the MP150 are getting noiser and they are really noisy when they are not connected to the preamp (Devialet off). So I am thinking to replace them with a newer and better digital amp and would like to get some recommendations for mono blocks:
Option 1: Hypex N-core400 + SMPS600
Option2: Anaview AMS0100 or AMS100 either of them in bridged mode. The AMS0100 has somewhat better measurements and might have enough power (100W) but which sounds better?
Option 3 any other suggestion?
Both Hypex and Anaview are primarily designed for balanced input (but allow also single ended) but the pre out (analog) of my Devialet is single ended only. Are there any sound quality issues by not using balanced connctions(especially noise which I want to eliminate)?
Thanks for any input!
