Clocking Help

Hello GSters..

I'm working on my new studio setup and need some advice, the same computer will be used for both mixing and mastering and therefore have mulitrack converters and mastering converters\processors connected to it. I'm using PT HD Native with:
2x Lynx Aurora
1x Apogee DA-16x (maybe I'll sell this one)
1x Lynx Hilo
1x DCS 904 A\D
1x Benchmark DAC
1x Junger Audio Access 1

the Aurora's are connected to the PTHD native using digilink so i have 16 analog I\O's and 16 digital I\O's with every Aurora which is enough for connecting everything but I'm afraid of digital jitter problems while working with so many converters connected to one system, another thing I'm worried about is the Aurora internal clock.. whenever I'm clocking the Auroras from the DCS clock everything sounds MUCH better, more details, better stereo image, can hear more of the material's low level information like reverb tails etc, it's a bit of a problem to have all the rig clocked from the DCS since it has only one BNC WC out. would you buy an external clock ? if so which one ? is something like an Apogee Big Ben be on the same level as a DCS clock ?

Just get a clock distribution box if you're happy with everything else.

thanks ! like this one for example ? :
MUTEC Germany - MC-7

Isn't there a degradation of the original reference WC using this kind of device ?
