    In the latest edition of SP, JA wrote a review of the AQ Jitterbug. JA found that the Jitterbug improved the sound of 3 of the DACs he tried it with. When JA measured the Jitterbug, he could find no measurements to indicate why this is so and he wasn't happy with that. However, he strongly recommends it to the readers.

    You're welcome. I'm glad some folks actually read the article, my intent, to share.
    He covers a lot of ground there and I'm especially pleased that he explains in detail the limitations of so called "room correction" products, since they have become very popular, but are not quite the panacea many think them to be.
    It's also great that we have folks like Toole et al, who are intellectually and scientifically curious enough to vigorously search for the correlations between audio measurements and sounds, rather than just passively believe in magic and alchemy. Dating back to the old days of Blumlein.

    cheers,

    AJ
