Building a guerilla writing/recording workspace

Hi there,
I was hoping to get some suggestions here. I'm building a bit of a workhorse studio setup to write and record a new record in part from home. We have a brand new imac and we're looking to roll with an interface that is firewire, and compatible with protools 10 and the new computer. We also own 1 channel of Brent Averill 1272 pre.
Is there anything in the realm of say the apogee quartet for under a grand? That can hold it's own sonically with this setup?
Any suggestions would be helpful

Look at the Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56.
Liquid Saffire 56 | Focusrite

It sells in the $900-$999 range and has a ton of features including 2 channels of their "Liquid" Preamp Technology that includes 10 modeled preamps including the API 3124, Avalon VT-737, Focusrite Red, Helios Console, Manley SLAM, Neve 1073, Pultec MB1, Telefunken V72, UA-610 and Millenia HV-3D .

Might be even less on eBay.

If I had to get rid of my Yamaha n12 digital firewire mixer today, this is what I would buy at this time.
