High-Tech Digital Stream Noise Filter: The Musical Fidelity M3 Series

proprietary filtering circuit gives immeasurably small jitter, noise, and
distortion artifacts - allowing astounding imaging, detail, and transparency. As
a result the M3 Series CD player delivers all music types exactly as the artist
Low Jitter (< 135 picoseconds): Jitter blurs the timing information of
reproduced audio signals between your digital audio source and your amplifier
resulting in degraded audio quality. The Musical Fidelity M3 Series CD player
virtually eliminates jitter by re-clocking the audio data from the compact disc
player to your amplifier. As a result, your music sounds warmer, precise, and
more realistic - without the harshness and distortion caused from jitter.
