What will the keyboard be used for? Home studio, live....etc.?
Have you visited your local music store and auditioned any of the ones you mentioned?
Would you consider buying used?

They would all be capable for what you are looking for. I'd suggest playing each one, do some online research. Then make a decision.

I say that because I'm not good to pull that much money out of pocket.

Like I said... any of the ones you mentioned would work for Trance, or plenty of other styles. It's not so much the keyboard, but the person playing it!
Actually, I've been involved with synthesizers and music composition for ages. If you'd like to chat online sometime, let me know.
