Is 48000 Hz too high for vocals?

The vocals suffer a lot; mainly on the vinyl rips. 16/44.1 wasn’t a randomly chosen set of numbers, and honestly anything above 48,000 Hz is just plain overkill for consumer-ready, mastered stereo audio. Why FLAC when you can WAV?

What is the best player for 24/96?

Also, Ryzir, android players like Poweramp and Neutron can play 24/96 and even 24/192 but the android kernels have limitation and output only 16/44.1, so they all downsample the music with ibasso dx100 being the only exception as it’s custom developed and has optical/coaxil out. I guess for now the best option is dx100.
