|Full range speakers, 40"-44" max height|
Off the top of my head Paradigm Persona 3F Aurum Cantus V8F There's a whole bunch of speakers within that height range and comparable generically.
|Recs for small footprint integrated amp (<= 14 inches W) min 30 WRMS|
I sold a bunch of these for desk top applications

|B&W 802 d4 with Tube Amplifier|

My analog system was pretty close to my digital playback. Of coarse that all depends on the record and all the variables that dictate if it'll sound good which is one of the main reasons I sold my analog system.
