Behringer used to make one that was moderately well reviewed for $300 or so IIRC. Not sure if it's still in production, but you should be able to find one used.

It seems odd that RME can manage to put 8 analog i/o's with nice converters into a Multiface II box and sell it for $700-900 but they can't give you the same thing without the computer uplink for less than $1700. Look at the comparative prices to see what I mean:
