Default New clock help

I am looking to replace the clock on my sound processor with something better. It does not need to be a surface mount but if so here is a picture. It has a solder joint on each end. Any info/advice is appreciated. 24.576mhz is the stock.

Click the image to open in full size.

Are you referring to the crystal?

Ya, assuming that the silver part is the crystal.

Does it need replacing, and would replacing it improve things...And how would you know without some serious kit to measure what changes and whether there are any improvements.

For sure an improvement will be a dedicated PSU with ultra low noise reg. + R-Core tx.

I upgraded the clocks on my ESI Juli@ XTe sound card with a Fidelity Audio Micro Clock 2. I powered the Micro Clock from my low noise 12V supply rather than from the card. It was a very worthwhile modification.
