Youre seeking professional advice to buy non-professional equipment? I have not owned any of the equipment you specify but my guess is that any of them are able to make a much better coffee than your old Nespresso.
You havent listed budget but, given your choices, I would say it is sub-$1000. Of the choices listed, I would guess the Lelit is the best choice on reliability + value-for-money. You will at least have a better chance of seeing it demoed by someone who knows how to prepare coffee. Most Sunbeams and Brevilles I have seen in appliance stores sit on shelves.
You havent listed how many coffees you would like to make at a time? The Sunbeam has the ability to steam at the same time as the shot is poured. cutting down prep time.
Im not a professsional but my advice would be to put several hundred towards a good grinder; say, a Compak K3 (about $600); and put the rest towards something like a Breville Ikon. The grinder and good quality, fresh beans will make the biggest difference to your coffee enjoyment.
