I can see speakers including a mono block but you'd still need volume
control, treble/bass controls ... that's what a pre-amp or the pre-amp
part of an integrated amp does. What kind of speakers are these?

Having volume control, balance etc is fine with me. As long as I can
either bypass it or it's restricted to the headphone jack.

The volume control is built into the SLIMP3's remote control device.

Base and treble don't need to be adjusted nearly as frequently as would
balance in the scenario I described. Once they are set, via an
equalizer, it's pretty much a moot point to tweak them from the remote
control device. But it's not impossible to conceive that it might be
nice to have.

These are B&O's BeoLab 6000s; self-amplifying silver columns of sound.

Those are issues for a future piece of hardware, as well as the
balancing suggestion. But whatever is put in to a new dingus, it should
be accessible from the remote control device.
