Help to choose a compressor

Hi there !
I'm looking for two 500 series compressors (stereo or linked) for bus work :
- percussions
- final bus

I've got a pair of optical JLM LA500a for strings / choir bus and i'm looking for different flavored comps. I'm working on video game music production, acoustic orchestra as well as electronica / ambiant stuff.
I've a pair of Maag Eq4 as well to put on a "mastering" chain
For now, i'm consider taking two API 527 for percussions. The other comps i'm looking at are : Great River PWM 501, Elysia Xpressor, Serpent SB 4001 or a pair of Neve 2264a.
Any advice ?
Thank you very much.

i have an elysia xpressor and the serpent, need both but would probably buy the xpressor first....

but if you can find a used safe sound audio stereo toolbox 500 i would buy it in a heartbeat!
