Neve 5116

The neve is a great console. I see consoles and just channel strips up for sale regularly. But you have to watch as much as possible. We have the 5116 in our room and it has been great. What you might want to consider is creating a side car with the 5116 modules. Then you have a more cost effective option and the neve sound when you want it.
I have worked extensively on the Sony and it isa great tracking console. Good clean signal path, good eqs. I hated the automation. When the studio upgraded to the API pres and eqs the sound quality was dramatically enhanced. when I say that I mean it gave it a more noticeable character. At least one we all liked.
