RE: Got Jitter?

"How would you ever know this?"

I don't know.... But I think (believe).... Stated this in the comment.

I believe so because my experiences with digital re-clocking have not exactly been positive..... I've often tried it, and come to the realization that it made the sound worse.

The belief was reinforced by whenever I tried copying CDs..... The CD copies usually sounded worse with the "jitter reduction" turned on relative to being turned off. (The best sounding copies were done the "on the fly" method, where the data is transferred directly from CD to CD-R, without an intermediate step copying temporarily to hard drive.)

The belief is more experience than hard fact. There could be other phenomena going on that could account for this. (So I could be wrong.) But I have come to the conclusion that for me, the best re-clocker is no re-clocker.
