It's not typical that TM would be faster, but perhaps your LinkStation NAS (which is generally pretty slow) doesn't handle large files (the image) well? Time Machine uses "sparse bundles", which manage a large number of small file "bands" in a package, rather than a "sparse image", which uses a single large file...
