Considering your setup is already fairly good I probably wouldn't spend that much unless I was gonna see a real difference, which IMO you'd only find from getting something like a Lynx aurora MK2 and pairing that with some good outboard preamps of some sort. Just my 2 cents.
Thanks, kev1n28.

Yeah, the x8p is probably too much money if I'm ambivalent about the plug-ins. The Aurora is nice, obviously, but I've been hoping to get a small 1- or 2- rack space size configuration of preamps, converters, and interface. There aren't a lot of options for PCs.
