I think the MF is better built and will probably sound better. It does well with low impedance loads.

The units you listed would all be good choices, but if it were me I would probably go a different route - non-phono integrated and seperate phono stage.
I would look at the Jolida JD-1301A hybrid amp. It's a 30W killer and is available new for under $400. Then pair it with a good inexpensive phono stage (Bellari, Cambridge, Pro-Ject) and you will have a combo that should sound great with your Ushers.
If you need a DAC for a digital front end, maybe a used Peachtree Decco would be the ticket at approx. $400 (or less) used. Again, pair with an inexpensive phono stage and you have a very good but quite inexpensive system.
