Default To superclock or not?

Hello
I have a Monica2 NOS DAC that reclocks the spdif signal. See http://diyparadise.com/dackit/1545bdackit.html
Is there any point adding a superclock upgrade to my transport, if my DAC reclocks? I suspect that the reclocking is minimal???
Any suggestions?

Apologies.
RE: My DAC: "it has asynchronous reclocking of the 3-wire eiaj signals".
I do not understand what this means though.

The 3 lines from the 8414 get clocked through a D-type flip flop at 80MHz. This makes the signals synchronous with the 80MHz clock and improves jitter but probably leads to data errors.

I have no idea if improving the transport will be worthwhile

It is. The reclocker in the DAC is an attenuator, less jitter in means less jitter out

when upgrading your drive with a new clock, make sure the SPDIF signal is reclcocked again as well
