I agree. I've never thought the dither option in Jack made sense to me. 
Jack should be a patch bay, not a processor. Too many options for mistakes.

Since I still do all my final mixes in Pro Tools, I'll note that the 
Waves L2 UltraMaximixer offers dithering to different bit lengths (24, 
20, 18, 16 and 8 I think) as well a few options for changing the dither 
type and noise shaping.

Jamin should consider this sort of support when you feel it appropriate.

You *might* consider having 2 outputs from Jamin - dithered and 
undithered - so that possibly you could A/B the two. Please time align 
the two if you ever do add an option like this.
