Let's expect the ultimate portable MP3 player with atomic clock 
reference... >:]

Also funny are the offerings with RbO CD-clocks... usually "tweaked" 
FE-5680s, which are not exactly famous for a clean jitter/spurious free 
output signal... The only reason is the easiness of output frequency 
adjustment (for the DDS models) to that of the standard CD clock, which 
promptly places a premium on the price tag.
A good XO is way better and cheaper, with the notable exception of 
temperature, and long term stability - still waiting for the golden ears 
capable of hearing that one...
