Theoretical and Audible Effects of Jitter on Digital Audio Quality
Many digital audio systems now use some form of self-clocked digital interface for audio delivery. With the advent of new digital audio systems that use IEC 61937 to convey non-linearly coded audio, the total number of devices using the IEC 60958 interface has substantially increased. The digital interface may contain jitter that translates to distortion in the audio at the point of conversion back to the analog domain. Sources of digital audio, the digital interface, the mechanisms by which errors are introduced, and the effect on DACs are examined
