That wouldn't be ironic, at all. It would be false. You see Amir, the overwhelming evidence before us is that the audiophiles don['t hear jitter. They may have misinterpreted differences due to
(1) Audiophiles moving around in the listening room,
(2) Audiophiles simply not playing the exact selection of music, or
(3) Audiophiles simply not playing the music, at the same SPL
(4) Audiophiles unaware of the difference in how they perceied the same selection of music now versus how they perceive it a few minutes ago.
One of the evidences of the fact that most audiophiles have never heard jitter is that they don't know how to describe what jitter sounds like in ways that are believable to people such as myself who do know what audible kinds of jitter sound like.
Another strong piece of evidence is that audiophiles report hearing differences due to jitter when there is no evidence that audible amounts of jitter were actually involved.
For example we have someone on this forum who apparently spent the big bucks for a jitter-resistant DAC, and now is telling us that its vendor is routinely making fraudulent claims. Audiophilia is really strange - we have person after person bragging about how badly they got scammed, and then they turn around tell their friends to get scammed the exact same way!
So tell me Amir, what does jitter sound like and why do you know that you are right?
