Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

Just a thought ...

The term "time-smear" could be said to encompass jitter, too. At one time one thought of jitter in terms of ugly anharmonic tones, but these days some people think of it (timing errors in digital data transmission) as having different, especially spatial effects--smearing images, making them seem less solid. The industry spent a lot of years obsessed by jitter, and even today, some designers (I'm thinking in particular of Ted Smith) talk about it a lot.

Thought of that way, the whole history of digital audio, more or less, could be considered the history of dealing with "time-smear."
