studio upgrade advice needed

my actual set up is : G5 dual 2.5 , rme hdsp 9652 , creamware A16 ultra converter , Harrison 790 pro mixing desk, quested H-108 monitors , alesis monitor one ,joemeek twinq , tl audio indigo 2021, various analog synths and drum machines .
i mainly compose elecronic music , so no mics ,pres ...

i've recently done some acoustic treatment in my studio(following all the advices i found here) and would like to upgrade also the quality of my recordings .
i have 2000 eur to spend .

I thought that a better converter could improve things , but it's very expensive (approx 2K). Actually i've red that the A16 has good D/A but poor A/D .
Maybe i could buy just an apogee duet and record to a macbook pro the out of the harrison, which i only use as a summing unit , i mix in logic, mainly with waves classic studio collection plugins.
should i buy newer summing unit ? the harrison it's wonderful but rusty ...
new , possiby active , monitors ?
thanks for your help and time !

You ask for other monitors?
Are you not happy with your Quested? What power amp do you run them? Maybe wanna try another amplifier - they are not good working with EVERY amp and can sound thin and harsh then.
I have 3 pairs of H108 and are very happy with them.

Hi , i'm very happy with the quested , but they are old and need some service (they don't sound the same anymore, the left one has less mids and more highs and the right one has some woofer problems i can see the "wool" inside the hole moving and making noise) . for sure my amp is crap , an old alesis RA100...
The H108 lack some low end for my tastes, but i've a SUB , cross over 60 hz.
any suggestion is welcome !
