Atom HE with active speakers

Hi. I am considering a second system based on the Atom HE (with my existing Sennheiser HD800S headphones) coupled with active speakers. I had been interested in the Audio Acoustic AE1 speakers but am now intrigued by the Buchardt Anniversary 10 active speakers, perhaps using their Platin wireless hub.
This would seem to give me what I want in a quite minimalist system with excellent headphone performance (and having demo’d this there is no way back!) and, seemingly, great speakers.
Is there something that I have missed? I admit that I am not sure how the Atom HE connects to the Buchardt Platin hub, but I could otherwise just use balanced XLR cables.
TIA

If you are looking for a minimalist headphone amp/streamer, then the Atom HE certainly fills the bill. It is a very versatile product, as well as being a very good headphone amp. I’ve never heard the speakers you are considering, but keep in mind that the most important feature of speakers is how they sound in your room, so be sure to listen to a few, preferably more than once.

I will be sure to home demo them. Buchardt only sell direct (from Denmark) but seem to have a well thought out process to try at home for up to 45 days (subject to a cost of €100 if the units are returned).
