Complimentary EQ to the RND Portico 5033

I just picked up a Portico 5033 to demo and will definitely be buying it and at least one more. It's such a flexible, elegant sounding EQ that it's temping to get just as many as I can afford to use as inserts on my Midas console with it's so-so eq.

Of course, then I wonder if I should mix it up a little (although, again, the Portico seems to be the perfect EQ for my ears) and get a pair of them and a pair of another eq that complements them nicely for different situations.

Any suggestions?

Ideas I've had are Massive Passive, Chandler Tone Control, or API 5500.

I don't have a 500 rack so I'm looking for 19" format.

In general, something in the "I'm a Pultec" camp would be quite nice and total opposite end of the EQ spectrum from the 5033, which is generally clean and precise.

We love the 5033 also, smooth box and certainly a "do all".
