Black Lion Audio has a good clock i had one for a few months last year, depends what digital gear you're running though, multiple digital interfaces and outboard should see an improvement, but as has been said, you need to see if your interface will benefit from this(cant polish a turd kinda thing)
Exactly. A good clock does very little in terms of improvement to a decent interface (prosumer and above) by itself - if anything clocks actually introduce more jitter to single units (apart from MOTU units which while having good converters, have relatively mediocre clocks).
With motu, unless you're going to pony up for a very serious clock like an antelope, you're way better off doing an internal clock mod such as the BLA.
However, the moment a you are trying to sync more than one digital device, the need for a clock become much more important, and vital when dealing with different sample rates accross multiple systems.
