What's the point of higher sampling rates in audio?, Such as 96 and 192kHz.

Could someone explain to me why there are some recordings with sample rates as high as 192kHz? If most of us hear up to 20kHz, wouldn't 44.1kHz or even 48kHz be enough? Or is there other practical aspects besides boosting maximum frequency in higher sampling rates I am not aware of?

I bet most of these 16/44.1 fanatics rips/ripped their best tapes/vinyls using least 24/96.

My vinyl and cassette rips are at 24/44.1 (the capture card is an M-Audio 24/196) -- the higher bit depth at transfer merely saves me the minor trouble of having Audition convert it upwards. The technical reason for the higher depth is twofold -- 1) more headroom during transfer (I'm lazy and don't always want to seek out the absolute highest peak beforehand) and 2) keeps rounding errors inaudible when you're passing the audio through a digital processing/production workflow.

If the source audio is an SACD, I'll use an 88 kHz SR...just because I can. wink.gif But that's for archiving. For listening I'm quite happy to use downsampled versions if need be.

I'm betting they were inaudible anyway. Post ABX results and details of your workflow if you disagree smile.gif
