M'kay, so the Benchmark DAC-1 is apparently a fantastic unit, and by the looks of it, it has a monitor volume knob. This, to me, makes sense. Digital out from 002R to DAC-1, and from there to the monitors. Cool. Now, how does it work on AD/DA units that don't have a volume control knob? Sorry for the silly question, but I'm curious as I'm considering picking up a UA 2192 before the end of the year (tax purposes, gotta love it). I figure why not spend a little more than what an Apogee Rosetta can do and get the WordClock with AD and DA all in one unit. If the monitors are plugged into the analog outs of the 2192, am I controlling the volume as usual in PT or any other software using the 002R as an interface? Next, how important is the WC if I'm not necessarily tracking bands, just one or two sources at a time (for now)? Do good converters take precedence over a solid WC? The pricec is fine, I'm just trying to learn how all these things interact and how important they are in the gear food-chain. One last thing, when I read things like "all of it slaved to the Big Ben (or whatever)", what exactly needs to be slaved to it besides the Digi002R? Any enlightning comments welcome... Thanks!
