I would at least ask the following: what should you actually measure in the first place and why, in which conditions on what gears, what are the specs and tolerances of the material involved, is your protocol for measurement strong and reliable... Sensible measurements should be done in controlled environment such as a lab, and by people in the business... Otherwise, at least to me, they are clueless.
While things could prove to be difficult to measure, even for the people at M2Tech, it should be much easier to listen to differences in an A/B comparison, at least, in my experience.
And this is where I blame M2Tech, for not listening to their product after changing a key component in their design and putting deliveries and schedules ahead of customer satisfaction.

My HIface is only a few months old...
You could try to play 44.1khz files and then upsample them at 48khz with Foobar SOX and find out if you can hear significant differences... If they sound fairly equal, then you should not worry too much, unless of course you received a HiFace with 2 "small clocks".
