Decisions...what to upgrade next? Condenser Microphones

Decisions...what to upgrade next?

Hello everyone!

I am currently running a pretty basic home studio at home but I'm looking to continue upgrading it.

My rig so far is:

15' macbook pro running logic.
Interface = Mbox2
Monitors = yamaha hs80's.
microphones = shure sm57/58, Rode NT1A.
Plug-ins = waves.

I also have fitted out my room with acoustic treatment.

So my question is what would be most beneficial for me to upgrade next? I am thinking perhaps my interface first (perhaps an apogee duet or ensemble?) but I am open to suggestions.

I use mostly amp emulators for recording guitar and bass, use addictive drums for drums so I really only use my mics for acoustic guitar and vocals (styles varying from rock vocals (like muse) to softer blues/pop rock vocals (like John mayer)).

In terms of budget, I haven't quite set one yet but as recording is still considered as a serious hobby for myself I won't be looking to break the bank.

Thanks very much in advance!

Interface and mics I'd say. Maybe grab yourself some small diaphragm condensers?
