    Lastly, this statement by Lavry also seems pretty convincing to me, addressing the issue of "optimal sampling rate":

    "At 60 KHz sampling rate, the contribution of AD and DA to any attenuation in the audible range is negligible.
    Although 60 KHz would be closer to the ideal; given the existing standards, 88.2 KHz and 96 KHz are closest
    to the optimal sample rate. At 96 KHz sampling rate the theoretical bandwidth is 48 KHz. In designing a real
    world converter operating at 96 KHz, one ends up with a bandwidth of approximately 40 KHz."
