    You might wanna try out a couple of separate boxes - as a general rule, more specialized a unit, the better (with some exceptions of course). Consider what you need the most, and find equipment to suit those needs - few "all-in-one" boxes are of the absolute best quality in everything.

    Sound modules will give you very limited capabilities. You are forever stuck with what they have to offer.

    You might want to look at a computer based sampler such as Kontakt by Native Instruments. It is very powerfull. You can sample your own stuff and manipulate it or use the loads of sample CD's out there. Plus you can play it with any midi keyboard. I own it, and while I don't do my own samples I will say it is powerfull.

    The Roland SRX cards are almost 300.00 each and used only on compatible Roland products. I also own a Roland RD 700 which will accept these cards, but I actually use the keyboard to drive Kontakt when I have need for a sound not found in the keyboard.

    If you are doing live work then a soft sampler may not be the right avenue.

    Kurzweil hands down rules the market in realistic sounds. Look into the Kurzweil PC2R or something like that.
