Next important purchase...

I've got about $1,500 to play with...here is my setup.

apogee AD and DA16x with midas venice 160. I track mostly with Burl B1D pre's and the midas pre's when needed. Compressors are fatso, FMR rnla and PC B6a (or whatever its called), dbx 163x. FX are lex pcm81, rockman stereo echo and stereo chorus. Drawmer 1968 on the master bus....

All good enough stuff IMO.

I'm thinking of upgrading my monitors from the KRK V8 II's. Not bad, but could be better.

Or maybe getting a nice EQ for the mixbus. Dangerous Bax or UBK clariphonic.

(And FWIW, my room is OK, but not great, however not much more can be done in the environment I'm in)

So better monitors or nice EQ? recommendations are welcome...thanks.

I'd go better monitors. Might be a stretch, but if you can afford speakers on the level of say Baby barefootes, you will be a very happy. Your chain of events seems pretty nice. i feel that KRK's are not up to the rest of your situation. A nice eq won't really change your world like good speakers might IMO. But you never know.
