Word Clock / Super Clock Reapeter

I have too long word clock paths (about 4/5 meters) from my master clock protools mix to my converters (RME adi8AE / adi8 / digidesign1622).

All are synced except the adi8AE and i think the others are working ok (there are shorter cables) but the adi8AE is too far away and does not link. So i use it withaout the word clock sync. (of course there are some bothering clicks recording speech)

So i thought to use eventualy a MUTEC DISTRIBUTOR WS or a Mutek Smart clock as
master clock. So he it's connected with the mix core with a cable (2 meters (?)) and thet means that the other cables are shorter.

Does that work ??

Or does exist a WORD CLOCK "REAPETER" ??

Perhaps a Lucid CLKx6 word clock distribution amplifier?

i see, hmm, seems to be fine for me.
the mutec has more outpus:

i need 6 (soon 10) word clocks and 1 super clock (maybe later some more)
(protools mix core is my master clock)

but at the moment i'm running a tc electronicsFireworx without ext.sync and so i
think that some units can work with internal sync .... maybe (?).
(so i won't use more than the 6 outputs of the mutec ... i know, that's not professional)

maybe another question is if linking the lucid or mutec with a second unit will cost
more than a more expensiv one unit (all in one) unit (?).
(don't know if they are linkable)
