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?

Why would it?

From what I have read, 16/44.1 has not yet been proven to be inadequate as a final delivery format, full stop.

Wasting storage space storing the signal between 22.05kHz and 96kHz seems wasteful as it is inaudible to a (human) listener.

16-bits is also considered to be more than enough to store the full range of vinyl.
