No complaints. I just get the task to do.
I guess most quality conscious products can afford to attach a dedicated
OSC to a good CODEC. A CODEC already specifies the clocks it support
and usually comes with 'preferred' input clocks. So, just having a specified
rating accurate enough OSC can take care of quality. On the other hand
the clock sources on CPU side are not particularly accurate for audio-clock
generation. Or so have I seen so far.
