If the perfect(no latency, no ringing, no phase shift, no frequency bumps or dips), real-time, brickwall filter could be invented, 44.1 would be just fine for recording.
If the perfect linear DAC, but MOSTLY speakers, could be invented, I wouldn't bust your balls and keep telling you that your assumption that higher sample rates will make things better for sure is not a good one.
