Any of the ones you listed would be fine. I agree that you should probably listen to them and decide based on that.

or Daking.
or a two-channel AEA TRP.

They are very different.
Depends on what you are doing with them.

My favorite on your list is the Pacifica but unfortunately there is not single channel option in your price point. You could get a P-1 and 500 series rack for around that price point. The Great River would probably be my second choice.

Another great single-channel option in that price range is the BAE 312a. But again, each of these has different characteristics and features, so you probably need to mention what style of stuff you do, what kind of sounds you like, and what mics you use before any educated recommendations can be given. Then, in a perfect world, you'd get several of them and try them out before committing.
