Go outside and buy a book and then study it !

For the really hardheaded in here: do you really think a 20khz sine wave can only be sampled in ONE position ? So you are really arguing that the phase shift of a AD converter is up to 90 or even 180 degrees ? Did any of you look at the video posted above ? The guy even goes so far to use 100% analogue oscilloscopes to prove to all foolish harts out there that there is time resolution BETWEEN the sample points !

In short: if you increase samplerate you increase bandwidth, NOT the time resolution within the previous audio band.

Instead always reading books, you should listen to the place of instruments in the audio space and ask yourself how present they feel.
This might help you in comparing recordings made at various sampling rates.
A good part of the difference can be found in this area.
