Will, I would think it would be ideal to have the Aurora do the DA conversion. Is it possible to set up a monitoring path with the Yamaha that does not require an additionl AD/DA stage?

Right - as mentioned it is undesirable to have the Yamaha do the DA if you can avoid it.

That depends on the slaving unit. I know that those Yamaha boards are very finickey about being clock slaves. I would certainly try wordclock first, that is usually preferable.
