Need advice: $3-$5k for Line Mixer/Monitoring/Converter

The more research I do, the more confused I get. I need help figuring out how to best rebuild a "simple" recording chain for a paltry bedroom studio. I have 2ch of mic pres, 6ch of synth/samplers, and 2 stereo fx units. Running everything into MacBook Pro & Logic. I want a simple, preferably rackmount solution to track, monitor & mix. Will probably combo ITB & OTB.

Things I've been looking at are API 8200A, 3124MB+, Dangerous DBox, SPL MixDream, etc. I know they're not all the same, but that's where I'm stuck. This is a starting point. I just want quality gear that I can build on. Slutty gear to track through & use for some OTB FX and mixing gear.

Can anyone help me figure out what I'd need to get, in order to set this up efficiently? I only need to track 2ch at a time. How should my tracking/mixing/monitoring chain work?

THANK YOU and sorry for being a rookie slut

The Title of this thread SCREAMS AMS NEVE 8816, but the options you've put forth are certainly all excellent ones. For your request, I would think there is nothing beating out the API rack of doom. My 2 cents anyway. Do a search, there are countless threads around here on these boxes.
