Also looking for something that can do CD Redbook audio (44.1 kHz 16 bit stereo). Are the MPC's the only choice?

They are still shown on Akai's web page but US online dealers no longer have them in stock.

Something that would allow you to alter the source and be creative before sampling the result. And while software is more capable, there is still a lot of ground not really covered due to people following the MPC template. I think integrating some interesting components to the sampling input would be a step forward somewhat and could still be applied to maschine, renaissance etc.
The problem with the ones you mentioned is that they are all discontinued which I think was the OP's whole point
