Well, the audio will probably have less of a positive impact on sound
quality than the negative monetay impact your pocketbook would feel
buying real 192KHz converters. (I.e. - with the M-Audio converters I
wouldn't think it would be all that noticible, but I don't know...).
Add to it that you'll be using 2x more disk space, and creating 2x
more bandwidth issues in your machine, and you're getting a bit

One other thought comes to mind. I'll bet you a beer the next time we
meet in Saigon that almost none fo the LADSPA plugins really work at
192KHz either.

Good luck,
