Not possible for any one still to be perfect for everyone.
And so much depends on the many variables... what you have available to ferment, what you want to produce, how much you consume, how much power you can provide, how much room you can dedicate and certainly your finances need to be considered.
If I had to setup in my small apartment kitchen then I'd say a 2" pot still would probably be the most I could accommodate. Doesn't mean it can't be nice - just means it needs to be small.
If my space was bigger, say a small shed or garage, then my choice go way up. 4" or 5" column is not out of the question if I can give the boiler 4Kw to 7Kw. Ceiling height now becomes the major issue if high purity or very fast production is an issue.
Pros have their own choices to make for their distilleries and I'd hope anyone and everyone shares what they consider to be "just right" for their circumstances. I'd think it would help the new comers and also the more experienced users on their upgrade path.
