Jitter from Sonos and how much the Synchro-Mesh reduces it

I used my jitter measurement system to record Sonos jitter while playing a 44.1 track (Sonos will only play 44.1):




About 9 ns of jitter using the Sonos alone.

Then I inserted a Synchro-Mesh 24/96 reclocker between the Sonos and the measurement system to reduce the jitter:




About 20psec of jitter.  The Sonos has 450 times more jitter than the Synchro-Mesh.

On the 20psec/div scale, here is how the Synchro-Mesh compares to my best Ethernet renderer, the Interchange:

Synchro-Mesh jitter, 20psec/div:





Interchange jitter, 20psec/div:





The Interchange has about 16psec of jitter and the Synchro-Mesh about 20psec of jitter.  Not too bad for a $599 reclocker eh?

Only 2 weeks left to get your free Synchro-Mesh jitter-reduction mods!

We should see some customer feedback here soon.

I plan to do the same measurements on my Oppo transport.  This should be interesting.

The SMR made my old Pure i-20 and ipod sound unbelievable! On its own, that source was absolutely horrible. I can't wait to hear the SMR again with the latest upgrade.

Glad you are back Steve! Didn't take you long to advance on Ethernet stuff, and now here you go finding more advancements in not only your, but overall digital tech. Keep it up!

Thanks.  I actually had a lull in sales and a short bout with a bad tooth, but I'm better now.  This gave me time to tinker a bit and I made some discoveries that surprised me.  Now I'm putting these into all of my products.

I need to try the SM on my Pure i20 and ipod!

Yes you do! It was the source to beat when I had it.
