I have demo both SRAM and Shimano - both brilliant. As much as it hurts to say , I would at this stage stay away from Campagnolo regardless of price - there is a inherited fault with the front chain ring derailler.
It's important to understand moving away from your Scott CR1 Pro - you will want to move forward , so moving to electronic you will need to look at frame/drive train/wheelset and cock pit , etc at the upper end to get either close or below(preferably below) to your CR1 weight and ride.
I like the Scott Addict RC under 7kg with Dura Ace DI 2 and Carbon Disk wheelset.
