Hard decision!

I'm going to buy a Great River Me-1NV pre but has some cash left so I'm looking for a little upgrade.

I'll be recording guitar and vox and the use a lot of samples and softsynth to create some singer/songwriting stuff with electronica + some sounddesign...

I'll sell my echo Mona since I dont need 4 channel + onboard preamps...

I have made 2 "package's":

1. RME ADI-2 convertere + a host card (does the hostcard have any impact on the soundquality?)

2. "Cheap" interface like Echo Gina 24/96 or Audiophile 195 + Uad-1 Studio

What would you prefer? And witch package would give me the best soundquality?
I already own Waves Musicians Bundle 2 but i think that the UAd-1 card will be much better...

Please help me out Gearslutz :-)

I recently picked up a presonus firebox, and have been very happy with it.
It's got alot of options including S/pdif and Midi I/O, is very compact, and has
a VERY loud headphone output, which can come in very handy.
It's built very sturdy, and is only $400,-

sweet lord is this market flooded. good luck to you if you plan on TRULY comparing all of your recording interface options!

I'd recommend looking at the EM supplement this month, "Project Studio Purchasing Guide" or some such nonsense. It lists gear alphabetically by manufacturer in a table-format which allows for QUICK comparison of features, if nothing else.
