Including gear from dCS your list is very good try to audition and if you go for combos stay in the same brand.

Mostly you should thinking matching with the rest of your system.

I would also audition the Metronome etc, first. The sound from these two differs distinctly, so a good place to start.
Presumably, you are bound to choose among the systems you list? Or is there choice beyond that (Zanden, for example)?
