Default D-Command/XMON connection to interface

I don't have a D-Command just yet, but I'm strongly considering it. In the user guide (guide version 7.3, page 22), there's a diagram showing typical connections between an XMON and a 192 I/O. In my case though, if I do this, I'll be starting out with my Digi 002 as the interface, which has half as many individual outputs as the 192 I/O. I'm not completely clear on the optimum way to hook up an XMON to a Digi 002. Should I send half of the DIGI 002 outputs to the cue inputs of the XMON, as the illustration suggests?

Since about all you'd be gaining is the ability to use the monitor level control on the D-Command I'd just skip XMON and use the 002's monitoring until you get some HD-caliber converters.

Then there would be the not inconsiderable cost of cables; you'd need DB25/TRS with the 002 and then have to dump them and buy DB25/DB25's if you used converters other than the Digi 96 I/O...
Note that all opinions, observations, whatever, in this post are mine, unless I'm being mean or am wrong, in which case it's somebody else's fault. I do not work for Avid (their loss)...my only relationship with Avid is that of a customer (when I'm not too poor to buy stuff, like now)...and that hot administrative assistant...that's more of a "thing" than a "relationship" (that should keep them guessing for a while...)

Just rockin'...what more is there?

Yeah, and I also have the Mackie Big Knob for multiple input selection, multiple speaker selection etc. It'll get me going for now at least. Good call!

And instead of the 002, I might give my StudioLive a go. The converters in that sound pretty good to my aging ears... and I'm not really put off by its 48K sampling rate ceiling.
