Neve 1073 DPD in 2015

I'm looking into purchasing a Neve preamp for vocals. Vocal recordings through my API preamps have a "crispy", "mid-forward" quality to them. I'd like to add a new flavor to see if it gets me closer to the sound I'm looking for.

My small setup is as follows:

Neumann TLM 67
API A2D
UA LA2A
Sound Devices USBPre2

I primarily record vocals, live bass, and vinyl. I have about $2500 to spend. I'm considering selling the API and getting the Neve DPD.

My other option is to keep the API A2D, wait and grab the Neve 1073 DPA, and run it through the API converters.

What are your thoughts? Are the old DPD's converters worth selling the API? For the money, are there better non-Neve options?

Thanks.

For the same money you could get a lunchbox and two AML 1073s. That way you get the eq section too.
