Whats good?? Well thats not a bad list to start off wit..I would prolly suggest throwing some plugin's up there, and far as that pre, its a great unit period, i use it myself...The adam monitors are good as well as the blue skys but i would get the bigger model not the smaller ones if i were to use them...What are you thinking of using for an interface? What are you mainly recording? Whats your goals? Those are the main questions that will help us give you better advice...Ne ways welcome to gearslutz btw.....

as far as AD/DA i would highly suggest Lynx as you can tell by my sig i own them and was blown away by the price to quality ratio. RME is always a good choice as well.
