Need some input

I'm looking to get an 8ch preamp out for my 002r, but I really don't have much money to work with at all ($500 MAX). I have an ADA8000, but the pres are awful. Instead of buying another adat preamp, would it make more sense to get a pre with no adat and just run it into the behringer bypassing the pres? Or should I just say screw it and grab a digimax or something similar? If I stick with the behringer I could live with getting fewer pres if they were better quality. I could really use some opinions. Thanks.

Not sure how much Digimax costs in the USA, but I have cross-graded from Focusrite Platinium Octopre to Presonus Digimax and I'm very happy with that choice. I do have higher-end preamps, like Great River and LA-610, but the Digimax is very useful for recording the whole band at once, and it doesn't stand out that much. It offers tremendous flexibility that no other 8-channel preamp with ADAT has in this price range: inserts on every channel (allowing you to hardware compress while tracking, for instance) and direct access to A/D, bypassing the preamps.
