En…Pronounced “ehN”
And your details could use clarification “I used to always use the former but have recently switched to the former”

I say /ɛnˈθuziˌɪst/ (your second example), but according to the dictionary, /ɛnˈθuziˌæst/ (your first example) is perfectly acceptable and is actually the first pronunciation given.
