    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.

    Cheers -
