Old RME fireface 800 used, is it worth it ?

Hi guys !

Like some already know I have some troubles with my interface and I'm checking to change it
I was to wait for the new PreSonus studio 192 but I just saw an add for a FF800 at 1k, seems to be clean.

IS the 800 worth it even after all those years or should I go for the PreSonus.. ?

Looking to get some help regarding my setup. I currently have an HD24XR, the digital outs are connected to the digital ins of the RME and so are the Ins. Total Mix controls the RME. I want to be able to record onto the hd24. When its full. transfer the tracks to reaper and mix.
Issues I have.

FF800 & Stereo Headphone Sends

This is a problem I've been troublesooting for some time.
I'm trying to get sends that contain stereo mixes.
Sometimes the clients get one ear, which can be remedied by plugging any balanced cable in part-way. But it's not stereo.
There's been a host of other issues, most of which I've solved.

RME Fireface 800 Troubles

Well, for the second time in less than a year, my FF800 took a dump on me.
What's wrong? The red "Host" light never extinguishes, and the computer cannot recognize the unit. Effectively rendering it DEAD.

The first time it happened, the retailer replaced my B-stock unit w/ a new one, minus the upcharge. That was nice, minus the 2 week turnaround.
