Front End Channel Strip Suggestions

Okay, so Im looking for a great upgrade to my front end for the second album. I am currently running a voicemaster pro at the moment. Its a great little pre but I would like more tonal variation and body to the sound. I am recording mostly R&B male vocals and the occasional female soprano. I am a fan of the channel strip idea wherein as everything is right on the strip itself, Compression, Pre, EQ, etc. I am basically looking for an upgrade to my current setup without having to chain several peices of outboard gear. I am recording 1 track at a time.

I have been looking at the XLogic Alpha strip as a possibility. Has anyone had any experience with this peice of gear?

Are there any other suggestions out there within the similar price range? I'm running a handful of mid-ended mics: Rode K2, TLM103, Shure KSM, SP-C1. Currently Mbox2 Pro, but soon 003 Rack for conversion.

Budget: < 2K

Can some of you offer suggestions that would best suit me for my home studio?
