Default Digi 002 pre\'s

I'm currently using M-Powered Protools with an M-Audio Firewire 410 and I am thinking about upgradeing. Wanting to be upwardly mobile in my studio gear, I have thought about making the Digi 002 my next step because I want to have more in's and eventually be able to use ADAT to get more inputs. My question is: Are the pre's on the 002 better than my current configuration? Would I be better off to upgrade to a better M-Audio interface (FW1814) and buy a good preamp?

Thoughts??

I use an 002 Rack, and the pres are pretty good. Better than the ones on the 001, in my opinion. But I've never used any of the M-Audio gear, so I can't compare them to those preamps.

I have two FMR Audio RNP mic pres that sound really, really good, though. If you just want better preamps, I'd suggest investing in preamps instead of a new interface. If you want the ins and outs of the 002 with decent preamps, I'd go with the 002.

converters in the 002 are much better than anything M-Audio has.
