Picoseconds or PPM?

An interesting myth has made its way into the market recently: that a 48000.000Hz clock makes your audio sound better than a 48000.100Hz one. Okay, that’s not the way they put it. Nobody can keep a straight face and say that. Instead they say that your audio improves when you lock it to an atomic standard. For some reason people find that more convincing. Why? Semantics!

This tech note helps you to separate the myth from the math when it comes to jitter.
