No offense but it's always the people with little-to-no experience &
knowledge that seem to think they know what's
right/good/proper/correct/enough. There's no shortage of
bedroom/google "pros" that like to argue with the real ones who do it
for a living. You have to realize that there's far more than nyquist
in play. At the very least you need to consider the source signal,
what kind of processing needs to be done, and how it will be delivered
sonically in post. Audio can be manipulate in scores of different ways
and the different methods & algorithms used to do so perform at
different levels. In other words, what works well at X may not be as
efficient or produce the same results at Y. In laymans terms there is
not a one-size-fits-all anything when it comes to audio (the same
being true for video as well).
