Then you should check out:
irc://irc.homelien.no/%23musicdsp (efnet) and it's mailinglist music-dsp.
Also check out the rec.audio.pro newsgroup.
Many enthusiasts and recording engineers there

The higher the better. Even with 192kHz you're not creating a correct
digital representation of the analog signal. Nyquist says 2 times the
highest frequency, but this still has some problems.

Sure, but this shouldn't stop you creating the best possible fidelity
in your recordings.

Not advisable; rather invest in processing power where you can use
free software algorithms.

Another reason to stay away.
