Seandtaylor99, regarding jitter... My comment is based on an introduction by David Rich to an article that summarized Robert Adams' AES paper (print #3712) on jitter. From the intro, "The effects of jitter can be assessed indirectly from black-box measurements, but in a correctly designed CD playback system these effects are commingled with, and USUALLY SWAMPED BY, noise and distortion products. Indeed, in exotic designs, the loony-tune analog stages are so riddled with noise and distortion that even large amounts of jitter would have little effect on the measurements."
In the conclusion of the article, Robert Adams says, "Traditional THD + N versus frequency tests and FFT spectrum plots for inputs signals of various frequencies are adequate to cover the effects of jitter. There is no reason to single out distortion components caused by jitter as distinct from those caused by such other effects as D/A nonlinearity, op-amp distortion, etc.... On the other hand, if the THD + N at 20 kHz shows little or no rise compared with the same measurement at 1 kHz, jitter is not a problem."
Adams is a Fellow of the AES, works for Analog Devices and practically invented the asynchronous sample rate converter.
