What's the best recording chain w/Duet?

So I have an Apogee Duet. And I'm researching the best equipment to use with it without spending 7 billion dollars. I was wondering what were people's different signal chains? Right now I just plug directly into the Duet. But I was thinking of getting a compressor (perhaps an FMR RNC1773) and a preamp (perhaps a Great River ME-1NV). Would that be a good combo? Worth the money? Huge difference? Is it even necessary? And how would I even set that up? Do people have any other recommendations with the Apogee Duet? Also, would it be worth upgrading to Duet 2 if I had a new compressor and preamp already? (I know the Duet sounds well by itself. But I want to maximize my sound as much as I can with just spending $2,000. My mics are AKG C-212 and a pair of Rode NT5's.) Thanks. lots of questions. my apologies.Reply
