Good Clock /Bad Clock

I'm buying two good channels of conversion. Probably a UA 2192. A simple question.....will this improve the conversion in my MOTU 896(low end I know) if I clock it externally from the 2192 (using in a bed track situation)?....there's lot's of people who don't know...please give me a some high end (from experience) opinions. Yes there are other threads...but a lot of opinions from people without experience. I'm working on serious projects and can't afford 16 great channels...BTW I think it does.... also (from a high end guy who I trust completely) I was told to track, mix and master with the same clock. The straight goods please. Thanks.

2192 clock wouldn´t improve anything clock-wise in my opinion.

the conversion plus the analog touch will be very different to the motu, but it´s always the question if "better".

i´m a UA-fan and heard 2192 compared to Apogee Rosetta, Lavry Blue and Benchmark. liked rosetta and 2192 best.

with silver cables or minium 99.997% true OFC with OFC shield, yes.
the ua 2192 probably has way better clock than motu.
also clocks get affected by dirt in AC power, get a furman ar-15 series ][, or better.
