I'd be seriously tempted by that Japanese mixer or a custom job but then I think the Rane is the sensible option.
The Rane seems to have the features you want, you can buy it new from a decent company with good after sales service, no hidden bullshit or waiting list and it doesn't sound bad.
As to the RK-40 and RK-27 whilst the 40 seems to be of a higher quality I actually prefer the slightly looser feel of the 27, all down to taste and what you are used to really.
