There are no disclaimers I need mention as I am not employed by Empirical Audio nor an owner of their hardware but the article should interest a large majority of us here. nugent Computer-Driven Audio - Is it Superior to Optical-Based CD Playback? by Steve Nugent, Empirical Audio Here are some of the points he draws his focus on: Jitter Contributors to Jitter Pits in the CD Optical read head Master clock in the Transport Transmission of S/PDIF format Digital cabling and optical conversion Optical conversion Recovery of the clock from the S/PDIF signal Noisy power and ground loops Computer audio methods Playing from the Hard-Disk How external computer converters minimize jitter Pops and Ticks I2S interface Ripping and file compression Upsampling on the Computer I sincerely hope you all take a little something from the article.
