I'll leave that last line for others to answer. The direct outs will do +21 dbu max. It is unbalanced so a -6 db drop compared to balanced output gear is normal. To retain some working dynamic range, raise the gain trims on your converter to avoid clipping.

Also avoid using the master balanced outputs to drive 600 ohm transformer based outboard gear. The 072 opamps cannot drive a load below 2k ohms without severe THD and level losses. If you must drive 600 ohm transformer input outboard gear like vintage compressors and the like, do the Toft mods I posted as that will allow driving 150 ohm loads without problems.
