Vocal chain upgrade

It's time to upgrade. Current setup= TLM103-->Ensemble-->Logic. I plan on selling my iMac 2.33Ghz Core2Duo, MacBookPro 2.4Ghz Intel Core2Duo, and Ensemble and purchasing a Rosetta 200 w/ firewire card, A-Designs Pacifica, and an TeleFunken AK47. I will be using my trusty old Dual 1Ghz G4 till I can afford an 8 core MacPro. For my headphone pre/talk back im using a little CME box. Now, I wil not be able to use the CME box because the Rosetta does not have an output to support it. I might be able to use my Duet, but I do not know if I can use both Rosetta and Duet at the same time (both firewire). So my questions are:

1) What do you pro's think about my chain?

2) Can I use the Rosetta and Duet simutaneously (Rosetta for ad/da, Duet for headphone pre)?

3) If not, what do I do about my headphone/talk back issue.

I mostly do male hip hop vocals, and female singer/acoustic guitar?

1) AWEEESSSOMMME RECORDING CHAIN!
2) Probably... just route the audio output to the Duet in your DAW
3) Not sure...

....sounds like a nice chain.
Maybe instead of the Rosetta consider a Lynx Aurora 8 or a Lavry Blue.

Recording without an easy monitor solution is a pain in the a$s. So 2 Chanels are too less I think..
Dunno if the Lynx work with the Mac..you will have to check. So I'd take a new RME HDSPe (Mac should be PCIe compatible) and Lynx Aurora instead of the Apogee Rosetta w. Card.

I'd go with a Neumann TLM49 instead, but nice chain
