OH's Pres for Rock: Pheonix vs. Flamingo vs. Manley SLAM vs. Helios 69 vs. EAR

What would be your top choice for an OH pre for ROCK? I use either KM184's or B.L.U.E. Blueberries as my OH mics. My AD/DA is an Apogee PSX100se. I own a pair of Distressors.

Here are the pres I found popping up a lot on the forum when it came to OH's:

Phoenix Audio DRS-2 (2) $2,150.00
Crane Song Flamingo (2) $2,650.00
Helios 69 (2) $3,600.00
John Hardy M-2 (2) $1,700.00
Sebatron VMP-2000eVU (2) $1,150.00
Drawmer 1962 (2) $2,250.00
DW Fearn VT-2 (2) $3,600.00
EAR 824 (2) $5,500.00
Summit TPA-200B (2) $2,369.00
Aurora Audio GTQ2 (2) $2,495.00
Manley SLAM (2) $6,100.00

What would be your choice and why?
