Profire 2626 as Stand Alone Preamp Unit?

This might be crazy, but... Can you use the M-Audio Profire 2626 as a stand alone unit for just the preamps. Meaning that it would not be directly connected to the computer as the interface via firewire, but the audio signal from the preamps would be routed to a different interface/converter (such as the Apollo 16)?
