    The author of the article has absolutely no idea what he's writing about, as evidenced by the following paragraph:

    The mental abstraction of ones and zeroes can help. Each bit (one or zero) must arrive at precisely the right time at the D/A converter for it to conduct a Ĺperfectĺ decode to analogue. If a bit arrives early or late, we get jitter. And in sufficient quantities jitter is audible. With more extreme cases of jitter we might hear momentary clicks or warbles.
    There are just so many things wrong that I don't even know where to start so instead of wasting my and your time let's just say that the article is a complete waste of time and be done with it.

    OK, but it's almost like posting a link to a story in The National Enquirer about Elvis in his hiding place fighting nuclear mutant giant ants. What's the point?
