Hello,
Audio files are compressed by MP3. Changing sample rate in preferences
will accomplish nothing and might foul things up.
See the Dover reprint "Mathematical Foundations of Information Theory"
by A. I Kninchin for more on the transmission of information.
My other reference is by Mickey Mouse.
If a sine wave is sampled by rectangular pulses, and those pulses are at
least twice the sine frequency; then the train of pulses can be smoothed
by capacitors and resistors, such that the original sine wave is
reproduced with reasonable accuracy.
