You mention you are looking for "better" preamps, and in my opinion I'd question whether the Focusrite platinum range is distinctly "better" than the ones already in the Edirol, which I think are pretty decent for an interface of that type. If you need more, then yes the Focusrite range is great value, decent amps and would recommend it.

However, if it's just something better you want, maybe consider something else. Focusrite ISA Ones are going for a decent price nowadays (which also includes a digital out- optical SPDIF which would work with your Edirol as it is) the Golden Age Pre73 is also great value for a great pre.

If its quality rather than quantity your after, do a bit of research into what other professionals are using and decide exactly what your needs are.
