How to connect Aurora 8 and Yamaha DM1000

I have recently bought Aurora 8 and LT-HD card to use with Digidesign HD Core card and Pro Tools 8.0. Also I use Yamaha DM1000VCM digital mixer for monitoring and general routing of external equipment.

1. Should I connect the stereo analog out to analog input of Yamaha then to the speakers? In this case I will have unnecessary AD/DA on the Yamaha.

2. or should I connect the stereo out via AES connector into Yamaha'a AES/EBU two track input?
In this case I will only have DA from the Yamaha.

3. In any case I will chose Aurora as master clock. But should I use a BNC worldclock cable to clock the Yamaha from Aurora? Or I can clock the Yamaha via AES cable? For clocking is it better with a BNC cable or via AES cable?

Just in case the info might be useful for someone else in the future, here is the reply I got for Lynx

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.
