Recommend me Good PRE's or DI's!!!!

hello
im using mpc1k Triton and Logic pro right now
im looking for pres or DI's or maybe compressors to fatten my sounds

my budget is like 1000
im gonna get a dbx 160x or xt for the compressor
and what kinda preamp or DI should i get??
i saw the avalon U5 has both the DI and preamp inside.
is that pretty good?

Never tried it so I wouldnt know, but in that price range the Great River ME-1NV has a great DI that can add a lot of weight and body to what you run through it.

I think that fatten up things is not what your looking for.

Ah that's more about producing then about gear.
The only thing you could gain from a DI for tracking would be some harmonic distortion.
You neverthetess it can't add something that is not already there.
