I'll bet you your year's salary that I can prove you wrong without even an argument on your behalf if you live near the Seattle area. Instead of going into a huge explanation about jitter and all the shortcomings of any digital transfer, I'll just say that they exist every bit as much as they do in analog. In order to understand them, you need to understand how important timings play in accurate resurrection of the original waveform. It's easier to forget all of that and simply let your ears show you the truth.
Edit: Btw, I'm referring to software based coding/decoding players and not simply some Denon IC based design. Yes, they retrieve more information off of the cd and you can easily hear the difference.Edited by sccr64472 - 10/15/11 at 2:45pm
