So this is for clock distribution in a studio?   While our eras don't care
about nano seconds or even micro seconds we do care that long of the same
length have exactly the same number of samples.  In other words at a given
times into a track, all tracks have the same number of samples.    I think
what matters in this application is long term stability over days, weeks
and even years.   So the first step is always to figure out your
requirements and USE NUMBERS.

Next.  It is not "either/or"  you can put the PPL at 24..5MHz or 48K or you
can divide by 10 and put the PPL at 2.45Mhz.  or any place in between.

One question:  Why use the receiver as a clock source?  Most use something
independent like an OX or even Rb then use that to drive a DDS chip.
