So from what I have gathered in past readings on the topic of Jitter it has been my understanding (or misunderstanding)that Jitter occurs during the D/A conversion process and not before. It has also been my understanding that this phenomena is mainly the result of differences in timing between the source signal and the DAC.
Assuming this is correct, is there anything that can be done prior to the D/A conversion process (ie..signal is still in the digital realm or just 1's & 0's) that can enhance sound quality besides the use of a Word Clock?
One thought that I have been tossing around but haven't tried yet was to see if plugging my Wireless Router into my high end Shunyata V-Ray would produce any noticeable results for the better in SQ. Can anyone see any benefits of providing a cleaner power signal to a Wired/Wireless router? Could this potentially make any difference for the better in the way it transmits the 1's & 0's to my source component that then hands off the signal to my DAC? I am using a Logitech Transporter for the record.
I read a recent article in Stereophile that talked about the reviewer plugging in his laptop to a power conditioner and that it produced noticeable results in SQ so since the router ultimately is responsible for transmitting the signal could it be a worthy candidate for the same treatment?
Thanks for any input you can provide.
