I've been looking at interfaces recently (and am also looking at the 2i2) but one of the interfaces which looks like it fulfils your requirements (no personal experience with it though) is the Akai EIE or EIE pro. Not sure how good the preamps are, but there are 4 of them, there are 4 inserts, which means (as long as you don't mind going unbalanced from your other pre) you should be able to bypass the pre's by plugging into the insert (probably want to check on this for the EIE, but you can usually do it with inserts).
As I said, no personal experience, and I'm not sure how the preamps compare to the 2i2, nor what the phones output is like... But reasonable price, 4 ins and 4 inserts...
