I think 48 kHz is slightly higher than CD quality.

Nothing to do with quality.

48KHz is usually associated with Digital Audio Tape - DAT.

You probably won't hear the difference between 44.1KHz & 48KHz. Apart from the very slightly extended frequency reproduction.

But quality doesn't come into it to be honest because you can have a DVD - 96KHz/24Bit audio - and have a crappy recording on it. The fact that its on a DVD won't improve the quality. With sampling frequencies above 44.1KHz the important factor is the 'Bit' rate or the 'sample resolution'.

Its just a different format...

I stand corrected. I figured higher sample rate, higer quality. But of course, you can have a higer sample rate of the same quality audio. Thanks for the clarification.
