Hi everyone. if these following doubts have already been dealt with in other threads, please address me to these. My main doubt is why 44.1kHz for the cd and 48kHz for the dat? if I understand well when the dat format was defined the cd format was already available since some years. Why this decision of increasing the sampling frequency at 48 kHz? second doubt ... is there any perceptible difference between a recording 16/44.1 and 16/48? Or better ... from the original dat recording and the cd produced from the original ? A friend recorded some quality LPs in 16/48 format and told me there were no big differences between original and digital copy. A good sign, isn't it?
