Default Cabinet maker/carpenter needs advice on what to buy

Hello all"......
I am a cabinet maker and carpenter. I mainly do cabinets, built-ins and closet systems.
I have a four ft by eight ft bench set up by my roll up door. I use it to breakdown full sheets of plywood. I currently am using a Festool t55 and track.

I would like to get a system that I can break down full panels but also cut dados and rabbits.

So I am thinking about the 54" saw system and the ezsmart router add on. Then build up the system with maybe a bridge, etc.

I have a Grizzly slider that I love, and it gets the majority of use in my shop.
But it will not rip a full sheet, and trying to crosscut a full sheet is very awkward and some what dangerous.
So that's why I break down full sheets with the Festool.

So is this the best way to start out ?? And is buying from Eureka Zone the best place to purchase from ??

When I was running a cabinet shop, I used the UEG and cabinet maker to break down sheet goods. I found the system to be faster easier work than using an unisaw.

As for dados I found the SRK to be the best solution. It was quick, easy and very accurate.
