Default Mic Preamps question

I haven't looked at any of the new mic pre's out now. I know there have been some good ones that have come out since the last time I've bought. I want something equivalent (or close) to the quality level I have, but I need to add three or four so I have to watch the total price. I would like a mic and EQ strip in the pre. Something similar to the 9098 unit. What would you recommend?

The pre's that I'm used to are Neve, amek, daking, hardy, Etc. I've been looking at some of the warm audio stuff and it looks pretty good, but I haven't heard it in person.

Closest thing to what you describe(to me) is maybe the Vintech 473
HP z820 12 core, 64GB RAM, HD/Native, HD IOx2, PT11HD, UAD Quad, preamps from Vintech, Five Fish Audio, Miktek, Focusrite, Chameleon Labs, Warm Audio and Midas..............................

The better I drink...the more I mix.....

I've had and sold the AMEK 9098. Was never a real fan..preamp was good (then again..they all are "good" past a certain $$ range ..)
Also had the DAKING one that I freaking loved ( green single rack with external PWR SPLY )
Heard only great things about Hardy, thought they are preamps only though ??
Friend of mine had a beauty pre that I loved, but again no EQ or tone control (Tubetech MP1 )

I no longer record ( semi retired doing audio post ) but still have a few preamps hanging around..just in case ( Studer D19, API a2D2, AEA Ribbon pre and a Lafont LP21 )
