Sampling rate, aliasing of sine waves.

I personally dont notice a difference, but I am a loser.

I can't tell the difference between 96KHz and 192KHz on my Xonar + modded Klipsch 2.1s, but I don't have any native 192KHz content either.

You mean ~22KHz.

Regardless, this question is about sampling rate, not sound frequency/pitch.

99.99999% of human ears can't tell the difference between 96Khz and 192khz

96kbps vs 192kbps is a whole different story. In fact, I'd recommend an audiologist to you if you can't hear the difference on this one.

Actually you wrong, Music DVDs which are DVD audio are 96khz, there are a few that are 192khz as well. They are the highest you can get ahold of unless you go steal Gold Master audio disc which are 32bit/192khz or if your rich buy one from a music studio.

Also people do record in 96khz as well as 192khz and i seen a lot of .flac 96khz/192khz out there that are pure 96khz/192khz.

This. Most people's equipment are not high quality enough to show the difference, if any. There is a mathematical difference but is it a hearing difference? It depends.

True but CDs are everywhere. And the music people are buying from iTunes or wherever else you buy your music are mostly using 44.1KHz also, I think I've seen some 48KHz ones out there. Dolby Digital 5.1 for DVDs use 48KHz but the quality isn't actually that great at either at 384Kbps or 448 Kbps for 6 tracks of audio.It's not impossible to get higher quality music than CDs but it's the easiest kind of high quality music to obtain because it's so common.

Nah, just confusion over the diff. between bit rate and sampling rate.
