Where did 192 KHz come from?  Why is anybody interested in anything that far 
over 2*44 KHz?

It's common to have an audio ADC run much faster than Nyquist, but that's a 
hack to make it easier to build the cut off filter.  You build a simple 
analog filter and a sharp digital filter and decimator so the output is 2x 
the target frequency.  You get what you want without a fancy analog filter.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
