it has to be low jitter and cheaper than that if possible.
What about those cheap dvd or cd players you find in supermarkets?
You'll get low jitter by paying attention to the DAC receiver, not the DVD player.-abraxalito
Really ? Then there are a lot of Mod shops ripping people off with chassis dampening, isolation mats etc.
Even replacing the typical BR diodes in the SMPS with faster types such as the BYV26C can make a noticeable improvement to both audio and video, even via HDMI.
SPDIF may have relatively high Jitter, but Transports can be markedly improved.
You said it, not I.
Yes, these may have an effect by reducing the common mode RF output over the spdif interface. Not the same thing as jitter though.
In terms of CM RF, I agree yeah. But I stand by my previous remarks - if you really want low jitter you're pretty much wasting your time just by attacking it at the transport end. At the receiver is where it really counts.
This adage expresses the idea that if the ones and zeros in a digital audio signal are identical, no other digital-domain phenomenon (in a properly designed digital audio system) can influence sound quality.
