Default Re: 192 and 888 system: Do I need a clock?

I am think about buying an 888 to run alongside my 192 for mixing duties. The 888 will provide 8 extra outs so I can mix 16 channels of analog through my desk.
Should I consider an external clock to sync the 192 and 888 together, or should I just use the clock from the 192? What kind of differences should I expect?
Sorry if it's obvious, but you want to get the 888|24, and not just an 888. The old 888 not only sounded awful, but it won't work with an HD system. The 888|24 will work on the legacy port (actually, two of them will with a 'Y' cable) but they don't sound very good, especially the DACs.

Why not get an extra card for your 192 to add 8 modern DACs?? They'll surely sound better than an 888|24! Or how about a lightpipe DAC to attach to your 192?

Best of luck,
