Lilo will give you clean path with ability to connect many outboards (that you may buy for difference you'll save compared to 24-32 ch 5088) that might easily lead you to 'bigger sound' (if you know how to use outboards).
No console will deliver big sound 'per se', knowing how to do it on any console is bigger part of the equation and I don't doubt that great engineer with good choice of outboards would reach necessary 'bigness' while mixing on Lilo.
More restrictions could be in other fields (bussing, functionality)
