'Quality' is a bit of a misnomer in the case of e.g. zita-resampler
and the 'sinc' options of libsamplerate. The only difference is in
the frequency response for frequencies near half the sample rate.

You mentioned that resampling would add noise. It does, but as shown
above the noise you have anyway is already at a much higher level, so
anything added by resampling will not make any difference.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
