Babyface Pro for 5.1 mixing Audio Interfaces

Babyface Pro for 5.1 mixing

I have a Babyface Pro interface. What do I need to do to be able to mix and monitor in 5.1?

I'm mainly trying to figure out how to connect all the speakers. Is it spdif out to some sort of decoder where I connect speakers? What if I wanted to keep my stereo monitors connected to the main XLR outputs and then add the LFE and surrounds on a per project basis.

Or is this just not the right interface for this?

Not enough I/O without adding another piece of hardware. You could add an ADAT D to A converter that would give you 8 additional outs. TotalMixFX works fine for multi channel monitoring.

Thanks. Would the behringer ada8200 be a good option for this? And would TotalMix let me keep my main stereo monitors on the Babyface and have surrounds and sub on the converter? I am mostly mixing in stereo but adding 5.1 for occasional projects.
