Nahh....who cares about them. We just care about ourselves sitting in our
192KHz studios, right Jan? Nirvana at the console? ;-)

More seriously though, doesn't having four 24-bit samples at 192KHz give you
the opportunity to do something mathematically when going to one 16-bit
sample at 44.1/48HK? I would think that it's never bad to have more
information. It all comes down to what you do with it when you have it on
