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".

If your recollection did not include seeing ABX results then you're best served by purging it from your memory.

Now if you're truly concerned, I think you would perform your own ABX testing to satisfy this concern, rather than simply rely on what someone says once again. This is not to say that I don't trust Nick.C.
