I was wondering if downgrading, with sox, material with 24-bit and 192kHz samplerate, to 16-bit and 44.1kHz samplerate hurts a lot.
Not that I have noticed anything, but is this a dirty technical procedure?

Yes Nick.C,

This is my understanding too.

However I have some vinyls that I happen to found very good rips but they are 24/192, that is, too overkill.
Since the person ripped on such high-resolutions, does down-sample cause it to have artifacts like "horribly distorted" sound as I recollect someone said here that "downsample" was worse than "upsample".
