Audio Interface and Control Surface in one?

Looking for recommendations for a home/project studio level audio interface and control surface in one unit. I've searched a bunch here and on the web, but the only things I've found are high-end protools units or similar and the Zoom R series. Are there other products that I'm somehow missing that more or less contain:

4 or more channels

USB 2x2 or Firewire more x more

DAW controls like selecting/arming tracks, transport controls, locations marking and navigation, etc.

Decent preamps (which is why I'm not so hot on the Zoom R series, although they have most of the rest of my desired features - their preamps may be fine, but the units just sound a little... sterile)

Optional: eq and maybe dynamics processing pre A/D

Anybody know of anything like that out there? There are a bunch of products that have either the interface half or the control surface half of these features but not many that have both.

Sure, I might end up having to just get two units, but I'm curious if something's out there that does both.
