What ext. clock will make my Motu sound like Digi HD?

I use a native Logic based system at home with lucid 9624 A/D [which I use to clock the system] and 3 x Motu interfaces at home, HD192, 2408m3, 24i/o mk3, through a Manley 16x2 for summing, I love this system but...
at work I've just started using Digi HD system and have noticed that for mixing it
seems to have a little more clarity in the 'depth of field' of the sound.

would something like a big ben bring up my home system? expecially on the HD192 which I use mainly for mixing.

anyone else use external clocks with their motu's and hear the difference?

A clock like Big Ben would make a big differnce on your Motu gear. We use a 1296 & 2 2408s clocked to an Apogee PSX100SE and it imrpoved the clarity, stereo image, low end tightness & high end sweetness. The big Ben is a much better clock than the PSX so you should get even better results.

the isochrone looks good, seems it's cheaper than the Big Ben but claims to be the best clock ever??, wonder if any GS's have one?

hi

How much did your pay for your Apogee PSX100SE ?
I am thinking of adding a clock master here. I work with 2 digital boards (02R96V2 and 01V96) and a PT Mix Plus Cubed System.
