Picky hunt for feature list

I've been through a few keyboards over the years and built up a wish list... unfortunately I can't find something that ticks all the boxes. Is there anything that has all of these?

- Tenkeyless, standard UK ISO 88 layout
- Cherry MX browns
- PBT keycaps
- Detachable cable
- Good quality and solid feel / sound

The MasterKeys S with PBT keys seemed good, but I'm not having any luck finding any in stock (e.g. http://amzn.eu/d/0HjaJc0). I'm happy to buy a keyboard and then keycaps separately if they'll definitely fit, but I've not got the time to build my own from scratch.

Thanks for any help / pointers!

The KBParadise V80 is another option, but a quick google turns up ones in ISO layout OR with brown switches, but not both.

I like the Matias Quiet Click switches much more than MX Browns, like https://www.keyboardco.com/keyboard/uk-...yboard.asp -- but then you're never going to get PBT and you may get Matias's weird chatter issues.

Aha! Not sure how I missed the va88m - I'd looked on keyboardco too. Thank you - that looks spot on. Ordered the last one in stock :)
