Jitter

By Nick Landis on Monday Aug, 22nd 2011

Jitter is a time-based signal error.  Often misunderstood, this problem can range from subtle and nearly inaudible to loud and distracting.  Jitter can reduce low-level resolution (add noise) and add distortion.What are they talking about when they say "Jitter"?
