Thank you for the expected response.
I have never claimed that I can hear pico sec jitter, I stated that
it is amazing that noise can do something that sine modulation does
not. As stated, I think there must be something such as a second
order effect that correlates with jitter in this range. And I do not
Offer is still valid.
