Apollo + focusrite issue


I've been thinking about getting an Apollo for my studio. I've currently got a Satellite 2 Quad Omni, Motu 828 MK3 and a Focusrite ISA1 pre, with the digital card (going into Adat on the motu).

My question is; which of these can I get rid of to accommodate the Apollo?

I've heard that the pre's are very good on the Apollo but what will I be losing in quality by switching? Obviously with the ISA, I'm generally using it to get a very clear high quality sound, but the unit itself isn't adding anything particularly. Am I better off just getting rid of the Satellite and Motu but having the ISA1 going into the Apollo?

yeah that's what i would do, get rid of motu and satelite and keep isa. apollo is an interface, so keeping the motu doesnt make sense, also it comes with uad dsp onboard, so no need to keep satelite. just keep your plugins.
