Compressor for Vocals

Ok, Im looking for a compressor just for vocal tracking since I spent so much money as is, I gotta make the cut backs now so I'll probably use software compressors and such for the mixing and mastering but I'm considering these hardware compressors....

DBX160A
Distressor
UA 1176
UA LA2A
UA LA3A
FMR RNC
FMR RNL

Now Im sure some are trash and some are better than others but like I said I'm really geared more toward the tracking than the mixing and mastering

And if it matters its a u87ai into....

Aurora Audio GTQ2mkIII
Vintech x73/81
API7600
Avalon VT737SP
Avalon M5

Any of the above and these are for rap vocals so keep that in mind and Thanks in advance

I would say the Distressor if you're only going to buy one... it's the most versatile piece...

Yea thats what I was leaning toward getting to o....mostly cause the la2a and 1176 come with the uad plugs and the dbx rnc and rnl I didnt think were going to give me that "professional sound" with ease or even the wow factor out of people when they seen it
