I need Input on a channel strip Please

Right now I use just an Mbox 3 audio interface with a AKG c214 mic into Protools 12.5HD

I’m Recording vocals only. I’m wanting to upgrade my sound by purchasing a channel strip. There are so many to choose from it’s overwhelming. I came across a TL Audio ivory 2 5051 for 385$ is it worth paying that for and also does is have a nice sound? Basically will I notice an increase of sound quality? I know it’s not a Avalon or UA lol overall what’s it worth and would it be a good idea to buy it? Thanks and I need an answer ASAP before it sales. Thank you for your time and help my friends.

I know it's not what you want to hear but amazing vocal sound doesn't come from microphones, preamps or channel strips. :/

So I know this isn't what you want to hear, but if you want a quality sounding preamp, you will break the bank. If you're just looking color/saturation, then sure, grab whatever tube preamp. If you want quality, you're better off saving your money. Honestly, I'm surprised that everyone keeps obsessing on preamps when the pre's on our audio interfaces are miles ahead of anything that was used on albums from the 60s, 70s, and even 80s that we all love. Like @ BT64 said, chances are the performance is what you should be focusing on. The 214 is a fine microphone. Are there specific issues you're having that you can expand on? Do your tracks sound boxy? Boomy? Not enough air? Not enough detail? These are things we can potential solve by looking at your production techniques.
