This is most likely because of a phenomenon called the 'stop watch thumb'. This appears to be happening because the joints in your thumb are a little more stiff when the temperature drops. 0.002 seconds sounds about right.

I'd fully agree with you Pim, except I didn't time it - I just guessed.

I don't think time is well enough understood - in general yes, but not specifically the intricacies of how time works within audio signals and hifi devices - where there is still much we do not understand. It's far 'more accurate' to guess.

That's one of the nicest compliments I've had in a long time. Thank you!

Eh?  All my posts on this topic have been jolly sensible and of the very highest standard.  The nut job stuff above has nothing to do with me! Sad

That's always the problem with the naughty kid in class. Even when you have done nothing wrong for once you get blamed  Tongue
