JBL Control 5 Power Amp?



I'm planning on purchasing a pair of JBL Control 5 Monitor Loudspeakers (175W power capability each I think) and need to find a decent amp to match. Originally I was going to buy two AudioSource AMP 5.3 Monoblock amps but I live in the UK and it seems it would cost vast amounts just to ship them from the US, as well as warranty issues. Several replacements have caught my eye such as the QSC RMX 850, the Crown XLS 202 and the Yamaha P2500S (too powerful?). Also I only have an unbalanced source and it seems all these models require XLR and 1/4" TRS balanced. Does anyone know any decent alternatives (stereo or monoblock) which use unbalanced inputs? Also would the combinations above be ok (assuming unbalanced can be easily converted to balanced)? I'm wanting to spend about £200 to £300 on the amp(s).

Thanks in advance
