VOIP for Audiophiles?

The world of recorded music, it seems, is going through the same transition that the telephony world experienced with the advent of cellular: Users are overwhelmingly willing to trade off sound quality for portability and other convenience factors.

Which gets at one of the things that nags at me: What if those people who say cellular has conditioned users to accept lower voice quality are, in fact, 100 percent correct?

Might it not be possible that each succeeding generation will actually experience auditory sensations differently--through a combination of conditioning to a lower-fi communications environment and, maybe even, actual physical changes?

So a pre-emptive defense of the name of this website: "No Jitter" is as much about the job we're undertaking here as it is about the job you're doing. We're striving to deliver news and analysis with as close to perfect quality as we can manage.

I hope you'll let us know, on an ongoing basis, how we're doing.
