Antelope Audio Eclipse 384. Still relevant in 2020?

I am looking for a high end converter, at a decent price. can't really go over 2,500. I found a Eclipse 384 for a decent price, I know they used to cost 6k, of course years ago was the top mastering tracking etc converters. But its 2020, I know new gear , doesn't mean better, So with that said I am looking at 2 options.

Buying the Eclipse 384. in top condition.

or The new Antelope Zen Tour SC

I looked at the newer Amari, but it is over my budget price, unless I find one used.

both around the same price.

I will be using t for ITB mixing, Vocal tracking with a OTB preamp, and printing, mixes, If the eclipse, then also mastering and final printing my own mixes.

By the way, I listened to some roundtrip wav files of the Antelope Amari, vs the Eclipse and it seemd like the low end on the eclipse is more transparent and faster attaacks, the amari seems more apparent on the mids and highs, the differences are noticeable slightly but not by much.

Any thoughts , suggestions. comments. etc. Anyone?
