Step up from Mackie 820i?

Step up from Mackie 820i?

I am toying with the idea of upgrading my little mixer for something that is one step up in terms of overall quality. I won't be using the mic pre's so those I don't care about... I have a channel strip for that. What I'll be doing is basically routing phone calls through it to record phone interviews, and then running the output to a separate line in on my soundcard to be as flexible as possible. I want to be able to hook up my monitors etc. and I also want it to have the basic functionality that most small mixers have. Firewire etc. is not needed as I already have a soundcard that is really good. Basically we're talking a small radio mixer with 6 or maybe 8 inputs.

Would I benefit in any way from an upgrade or am I just hungry for some money wasting? If so, what would be the next level after the Mackie (price-wise?) Any suggestions on particular models etc?
