Best Clock Source

Given a choice of the following sources for a word clock source, which is best?

- RME Hammerfall PCI Sound Card
- Focusrite ISA 428 Optional A/D card
- Frontier Designs Tango24

Right now I'm using the RME card as my clock source, then distributed to the other devices using a Lucid distribution box.

Any of the above should do just fine.

I for one don't buy the HUGE difference between clock sources. I've heard "expensive" clocks hooked up to converters and rarely hear but the slightest of differences. If your clock has a lot of jitter or doesn't remain stable, there's something broken.
