Interface/AD/DA qwestions, looking to upgrade (or not)

Firstly, I currently am working on a mac with a Scarlett 2i4 or a Saffire Pro 40; the former I am thinking of selling, and the latter I want to s as well but had some questions...

I have been reading other threads, and it seems to me what I want to focus on getting is really good converter, preferably one with some built in preamps. such as:

Then there are these other ones where I dont quite understand how the audio works on the back? It looks like as old school printer or something. It appears that I would have to use a standalone preamp as well and a way to monitor the audio?
examples :

I'm not sure which direction to go, and I dont have limitless funds either. Any advice is helpful including whether it is worth upgrading to begin with.

Interface questions go here please!

Ps the “old school printer” connection is a db25 connector - it’s effectively an 8 way connector, you either connect it direct to a patchbay or a breakout cable.
