Lots of good points here.

I'd just like to say that I don't think jitter is in anyway related to buffer
size or transmission method (wired vs. wireless).

Any short delays that occur between the server and the client device are
corrected by buffering; the signal does not degrade because of this - it's
either there or it isn't.

Jitter is a timing problem that occurs when transmitting digital signals over an
analogue medium (yes, even optical & coax cables transmit analogue signals).

This site seems to have a lot of information about jitter:
