If HF is your main interest, the TS480 is best but benefits from SSB and/or CW filter being added. Really easy to use while mobile with a clear display and everything you need on buttons on the front panel. A Kenwood TM-V71 makes a nice FM dualband companion.
If you want an all in one, the Icom 7000 is a nice rig but is a bit deaf on HF compared to the TS480 and not as easy to use although nowhere near as horrific as the Yaesu FT857.

If you opt for the 480Hx, you won't need an amplifier, that for sure.

I disagree with GOM. I've had both the 7000, and the 480 sitting side by side, and I'll be darn if I can tell the difference.
