HD native plus Orion pt11 thinking of upgrade

Kinda a long story here I’ll make it short in 2005 I
Had a hd 2 dsp system, it ran great. Mac died and I upgraded to a new 12 core Mac and hd native with an Orion about 6 years ago. I feel the old system ran way better.
I was speaking with Westlake pro audio about upgrading and they said this

Something smells wrong.
Why would you have an HD Native Card and not use it?
You have to connect to it via the digilink I/O to use the HD Audio engine, which is basically the whole point of owning it.

USB audio connections will cause Pro Tools to revert to Core Audio mode, which is fine, if that scenario works for the client, but again no need for the HD Native then as it isn’t really doing anything but sitting there

My studio is an analog room mostly.
But I think it’s time to step up again.

I need at least 24 I/o as I have an api 2488 so mixing through the console is key for smaller budget records.
don't care about latency as i use the api to monitor off of not a computer
