Burl B80-Madi or DigiLink?

Thinking about going all Burl-Complete solution.

Wondering what's more stable or advised for whatever reasons?
Madi or Digi?

I'm using Logic on Macbook pro/Imac

Thanks

Digilink = Protools, MADI = every other DAW. No idea about Digilink as I don't use Pro Tools, but I can say that MADI is very stable.

My system is B80 MS BMB2 > RME PCIe card/Sonnet chassis > Thunderbolt to Mac Pro. Works like a charm.

Digilink here (pro tools user). Rock solid.

Digilink and MADI are both rock solid. MADI is the more universal interface and if you ever go to ProTools you can use the MADI Interface.

On MADI you have 64 channels at 44,1 / 48
Doubling the sampling frequency means you have half oof the channel (32) and so on. But this is no problem since most multichannel converters have 2 or 3 MADI ports.

I got the idea of DigLink from my concept of using the Burl mothership B80 DigiLink to a Avid HD Native thunderbolt vs B80Madi using a DigiGrid MGO, either of those setups nto Logic Pro X on a Macbook Pro/Imac.

I'm told by a rep that the HD Native thunderbolt is rock solid, but I'm thinking I rather go DidgiGrid MGO since I have some waves plug ins.

But stability matters.
