Ultrastudio Mini Monitor with speakers?

Looking for best practices advice on how people are using the MiniMonitor in setups with external speakers?

I am currently using the MiniMonitor in my home setup to get video out to reference monitor via SDI and using output from that monitor to my speakers... it's not elegant, I wouldn't do mission critical broadcast mixes here, but it has worked well for my simplified offline home station.

That said, I'm looking to replace the speakers with new, powered ones with independent l/r inputs but since the MiniMonitor only has HDMI and SDI out, I am wondering what the best way to do this would be. Should I use BM's SDI to Audio converter alongside the MiniMonitor to split the audio and video signals? Or a different device altogether? I took a look at the Ultrastudio HDMini but it does not have separate audio outputs, only inputs...

Any advice and perspective on this would be super helpful, THANK YOU!

Personally I would get a dedicated sound card and wire them into that if your looking for reference quality, change the output in Resolve to go to it.
