well another consideration is the actual published double blind thresholds for audibly detecting jitter/clock phase noise - basically no quartz crystal oscillator made will have 100 ns jitter
so just about any quartz oscillator of the right frequency, output levels will be fine for audio

jitter does affect the output noise specs - DSD, single bit DACs are the most sensitive, full bit depth ladder DACs the least sensitive

the Temp Comp of the frequency really doesn't do anything needed in audio playback either - pitch perception is also much worse than common xtal osc full temp range dF - without added compensation circuitry

if a TXC oscillator is what you have, it will work to a very high degree - but the others are correct in that there are lower phase noise/jitter xtal osc, TXC as a class aren't the very best as audio measurement standards


but if you clock both ADC and DAC of your audio test system from the same osc the low frequency, close in phase noise/jitter effects on the measurements are hugely reduced

I short listed few of them. Please suggest which one would be suitable
