I'll share the same good advice I got from the #ardour IRC channel.  A 
company called Seventh Circle Audio (http://www.seventhcircleaudio.com) 
sells preamp kits of famous preamps that you assemble yourself.  I built 
some for my studio and they are indeed excellent.  These are the same pres 
from API, Neve, and Jenson but cost far, far less.  Combine them with a 
quality A/D and you're all set.
