Help me decide on a new piece for my studio!

Okay Guys, help me spend my money!!
I’m building a live room at the moment for my little studio which will have the usual sound treatment and this is a separate buy.

Looking at my list I think you can see that my real glaring weak points are in AD/DA, Monitoring, and the lack of an outboard EQ just now (although I’m also Jonesing after a Royer and a Farfisa!!! ).

I have $1000 to spend but could maybe stretch to $2000 and probably want to focus on 1 piece. Which area do you think I should Upgrade and with what?
Thanks!!

My Current recording equipment:

Mics:
Mojave MA200 (Tube LDC)
2 X Oktava MK012 (SDC)
Electro Voice RE20 (Large Dynamic)
Shure SM57 (dynamic)

Pres:
3 X BAE 312a
Avedis MA5
8 X Saffire Pro

Comps:
Tonelux TX5C
Empirical Labs Distressor

Cables:

Computers:
Apple iMac 24” 3.2ghz Core 2 Duo 4GB Ram
Apple Macbook Pro 2.26 ghz Core 2 Duo 2GB Ram

Better monitors, IMHO.

Yeah I was sort of thinking that would be best. Thinking about the Neumann KH120 or Adam A7X.

Monitoring and/or room treatment. These 2 things are vital to good products

Okay! I think monitoring it is, and room treatment is definitely going be happening!

Just got a little royalty cheque in the mail yesterday that I will be using to buy some Neumann KH120s I think. Exciting! Thanks for your help in deciding. I think it's definitely the right move.
