Anyone using the RME UFX with N5 on PC?

Was thinking of picking up one of these, but read in the latest SOS:

“(Cubase’s Control Room’s) major practical drawback was that initially it could only be used if you disabled ASIO Direct Monitoring.”

But then goes on to say:

“Some third-party manufacturers such as RME have also taken advantage of the ability to synchronise Direct Monitoring and the Control Room for cue mixing, but as far as I know it’s only Steinberg’s own hardware that can be fully controlled without you ever having to leave the DAW.”

Do I have to disable Direct Monitoring to use the UFX with Control Room?
