Most ears never hear the differance. Our ears, or trained ears can hear the subtle differanct it makes when editing. You will find it especially usefull in doing very fine editing as it allows a more definate sound for example when dragging to hear a pop or odd sound in your track.

I noticed the diff, between 24/96 & 44.1/16 but anything much higher resolution, I really doubt humans will hear from a consumer perspective. The real value is in the studio, by ultimatley lowering the noise floor, you'll use compression and limiting less as dynamic controllers, and more for augmentation.

Yeah, there are so many factors that go into the quality of a recording, that attributing things solely to sample rate is kind of ridiculous in my opinion. There are so many other things that are so much more important that will make a much bigger difference. Really, 44.1 is capable of excellent quality.

24/48 is what I record in. Only dogs will hear the 24/96 difference :))

You have to dither down anyway and that only adds unwanted artifacts every time it gets calculated down.
