Do you have a separate budget for other components ?

the thing is all those speakers from your list are really really good and they need to be connected with appropriate amplifier + source. Room treatment should be address as well. 

I would choose particular brand first and then decide which model exactly.

Diatone are fantastic, however they are Japan only, so pretty difficult have a listen. 
I have DS-5000s from 1982 and love their sound, they. Are pretty fantastic for all genres. There are also a monitor series that are highly regarded - 2S-3003. They are occasionally up for sale on Hifido.

      Item Condition: 9/10 (Like New) Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Wetherill Park State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, COD. Reason for selling: No space. I moved to a smaller place and was trying to keep these wonderful looking and sounding speakers, even after buying a pair of bookshelves. But now I cannot keep them anymore. And it is a crime to keep these beauties silenced!   These "Made in France" speakers look really good and the only small mark is on the back (left speaker, second picture). A similar new one would cost $4000 (MRP).    I am open to auditions with my equipment (Pro-Ject turntable, Chord DAC, Hegel H200 amp) or even with others. Pick up is obviously better, but I can arrange shipping if needed.   Some reviews place them close to $30,000 speakers, as they are very neutral and respond to gear upgrades: https://www.soundandvision.com/content/focal-profile-918-speaker-system https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/focal-profile-918-loudspeaker-1/   Specs: Type: 2 1/2-way bass-reflex floor standing speaker.  Drivers: 6.5" "W" woofer, 6.5" "W" mid-bass, 1" Al/Mg inverted dome tweeter.  Frequency response (+or-3dB): 40Hz - 30.5kHz  Low frequency point: 36Hz  Sensitivity (2.83 V/1 m): 90dB  Nominal impedance 8 Ohms:  Minimum impedance: 3.2 Ohms  Crossover frequency: 180Hz / 2 600Hz  Recommended amplifier power: 40 - 200W  Dimensions (HWD): 39 x 9 x 13-3/4"  Net weight: 43 lbs.

Suburb or Town: Wetherill Park State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, COD. Reason for selling: Space and Money. I moved to a smaller place but was trying to keep these gorgeous looking and sounding speakers, even after buying a pair of bookshelves (Usher) that actually fit into my room. But unfortunately I cannot afford to keep them until, one day, I have a bigger place. And it is a crime to keep these beauties muted!   As you can see in the pictures, these rare Made in France speakers look really good and new would cost $4000.  I am open to audition and pick up is obviously better, but I can arrange shipping if needed.   Some reviews place them close to $30,000 speakers, as they are very neutral and respond to gear upgrades:   https://www.soundandvision.com/content/focal-profile-918-speaker-system   https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/focal-profile-918-loudspeaker-1/     But do NOT believe reviews: hear them yourself (even if my small room do not make them any justice)!     Specs: Type: 2 1/2-way bass-reflex floor standing speaker.  Drivers: 6.5" "W" woofer, 6.5" "W" mid-bass, 1" Al/Mg inverted dome tweeter.  Frequency response (+or-3dB): 40Hz - 30.5kHz  Low frequency point: 36Hz  Sensitivity (2.83 V/1 m): 90dB  Nominal impedance 8 Ohms:  Minimum impedance: 3.2 Ohms  Crossover frequency: 180Hz / 2 600Hz  Recommended amplifier power: 40 - 200W  Dimensions (HWD): 39 x 9 x 13-3/4"  Net weight: 43 lbs.
