Comparing boards with similar (low) price,I feel that the RasPi series is more optimized for performance - especially the newer ones seem to fly, while the BeagleBone series - and hence the Bela - is more optimizes for accessing hardware. The "PRU" coprocessor provided by these chips (running independently from the main OS) can create and decode very fast non-standard protocols. Hence it's easy to do DMX with a BeagleBone but supposedly not reliably possible with a Pi.
