Absolutely, yes. Consider the clock in the DAC a heartbeat and with every cycle or ‘beat’ it decides what to do with the bits. If that cycle is loose or inconsistent, then the analog waveform will not properly mirror to what the digital signal is telling it to do. Therefore, providing a steady signal to the DAC (via the Remedy or Recovery) is equally important to providing a steady conversion of that signal to the analog form. The DAC can only be as accurate as its clocking source (master clock) and if you provide a sloppy signal (digital input) for it to track with such a clock, it can only do so much with what it's given. On the flip side, if the signal fed to the DAC is higher quality than what the DAC is running from, then the limiting factor would be the DACs internal clock and in our case, this is where we put the Femto clock in the DAC.
Think of it like putting poor fuel quality (poor digital signal) in a sports car (DAC with Femto). Surely it will run but not like it does with high octane race gas (i.e. the signal after a Remedy or Recovery). So bottom line is that the clocking on the DAC must be as good or better to take advantage of what you feed it, otherwise you are limiting your signal at the conversion point (digital-analog) which is most important.
