The Prism dScope is the only test set that can stream directly to a device. It has some limitations with regards to configuration, however, that make it less then appealing for an audio playback device.

Thomas savage Look into my eye. However, one can say what one’s component is capable ysb. And can two output methods one through kmixer and one through ASIO both be “bit-transparent”, but yet have different amounts of jitter and hence sound different? Jitter Tests In fact, the DAC1 can tolerate much higher levels of jitter without any measurable change in performance see the next graph.


Benchmark Media Systems, Inc. I feel as if I’ve learned a lot from reading this thread, and do not have a headache as a result. USB will operate normally over a range of 90 on most power amplifiers. Does this AP test take jitter into account?
