After yesterday's onslaught of digital audio links I'd love to get back to writing but I've been so absorbed getting back into the minutiae of sample theory that I blew all my free time reading. The thing that's really been sticking in my head this time around was the fact that not only is 44.1/16 basically sufficient for all our audio needs, it's even more capable than I previously thought when handled correctly.
All these studies combined with a vague remembrance of another article I read about high sample rate possibly hurting your audio instead of helping it. I has mostly to do with distortion from intermodulation that actually has more to do with your amp and speakers than anything in the digital chain. Anyway, here's the article.
