Exactly where is the ''jitterclock '' located ?

I have pretty good seperate components in a transport and d /a convertor.....I understand for the most part, the need for islolation and or de-coupling on a transport and agree that whatever you like to use is your choice in using either points, cones, feet, platforms with and without air.....etc., etc.,....but I had an audiophile just tell me that the d /a is JUST as important in using stuff to kill all vibration and airborne attackers...'cause that's where the ''clock'' is....Huh ?....well, should I spend some dough to put some of this stuff under a heavy solid state and also reputable d /a convertor ? I would if I knew that it really would make a difference.
It's probably in some IC (integrated circuit) chip.
Don't go looking inside your CD player for something with a big-hand and a little-hand!
On the jitter mantel.

I am not an electronics expert, so I'm sure others have a better explanation (if they'll take your question seriously) ;-) But I think you are confusing concepts here. Jitter is caused by clock timing anomolies. Look to this link at the Wadia site to see how they explain it...and then explain how the Wadia products try to minimize jitter.


I do not believe that damping or decoupling the DAC has anything to do with solving clock jitter. That's not to say that damping or decoupling the DAC would not be of benefit, but if jitter is your concern, I don't think that will solve it.
Both the transport and the DAC have the "clocks".
