If the audio produced is made for fruition of humans it makes absolutely
no sense to try and capture or reproduce anything above 20kHz, and for
average individuals 15kHz would probably more than enough.
And in case anyone is tempted to state that even if we don't hear them
frequencies above 20kHz influence the way we hear or 'perceive' music,
please also attach any _scientific_ study/paper/evidence (e.g.
large-scale blind tests etc. not anecdotal evidence) to such statement.
