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

Higher slew rates can make interface jitter worse

But as with many things in audio, it really depends on a variety of unspecified parameters. Jitter is often dominated by waveform distortion products, so higher slew rates necessitate a wider bandwidth interface, and the jitter may actually become worse in a bandwidth-limited interface. Some have actually improved performance by limiting the transmission slew rate, and clock filters are even sometimes useful in D/A convertors.
