RADAR: TDIF or ADAT Lightbridge?

I'm looking for Digital outs for my Radar station, to work with my DAW. Iz Corp sells bothTDIF and ADAT kits.
My DAW is able to accept both.
I would like to know what's pros and cons of both kind of connection?

Thanks

Assuming your RADAR unit is an iZ unit, go with the ADAT card. Pretty much everything has lightpipe on it. The cables are cheaper as well. Another plus with ADAT is you can expand your HD system using the old ADAT Bridge 24 from MIX 24 days. They can be picked up for around $400 rather than over $2k for a 192 Digital.

On top of that, if you ever decide to sell the RADAR digital card, the ADAT card will sell quickly. If you have a TDIF card you won't be able to give it away.

When I owned my RADAR I used AES.
The length of runs is longer and more reliable.

Get both. It doesn't add all that much to the price of the Radar, and it gives you the flexibility you might need for any and all unexpected scenarios.

Enjoy,
