Another vote for the Aurora Audio GTQC!! fantastic piece indeed!

If you want an all in one channelstrip that might be one of the easiest and better buy.

There might be the lunchbox route, but for 2k you will get a great preamp (Avedis MA5 or MD7) and a nice tracking compressor like the IGS LAOne (plus an api lunchbox).
Which is also fine and top of the line if you ask me (probably one of the only, if not the only preamp in the 500 series with a tremendous headroom and that is on par, if not better than 19" units).

You might get the eq later, or get the eq and wait for the compressor, depending on what do you need more.. I'd probably get the compressor first..

Get it used and save some $$$

Thanks for all the suggestions. My brain is about to explode! Someone on Craigs list in my area is selling a Chandler LTD-1 for $1700. Im itching to get it. Luckily this UAD Vox Box plugin has been holding me down while the Avalon's getting repaired.

Turns out according to Avalon that my 6DJ8 tubes that I upgraded few months ago blew something on the board. Don't remember the technical terms. But they recommend 6922 and only 6922.

Anyway, my mind is all over the place.

I rarely ever cut on the Avalon 737 anymore. I actually prefer the focusrite isa-1 and the warm audio tonebeast for pretty much everything.
