What do you have right now? Those are two very different options, one being a native DAW interface and the other a stand-alone hard disk recorder. They do both have 24 i/o , but otherwise it pretty much depends on what paradigm your studio is set-up on.
I've got an SDR 24/96 that I use alongside MOTU 2408 and 1224 interfaces with my DAW. It's a nice combo for getting 32 channels analog out of the DAW and into my console. The interfaces have the advantage of recording directly into the DAW, so you can quickly edit and automate, while the SDR requires you to transfer the tracks digitally, over USB, or through a hard drive swap. The stand-alone recorder is much better for monitoring punch-ins and playbacks when tracking through a console compared to the native DAW. They cover eachother's short-comings nicely. HTH
