I've done this for a few things...I've got a Memorex MP3 CD player which
only plays MP3s sampled at 44kHz...Much of my collection of Old Time Radio
shows are 32/22, and would not play on the player at all....by using LAME,
I could upsample them to 32/44...this goes through a decode/encode step to
do it...the resultant output was indistinguishable at that bitrate
(granted, not the highest quality)...Either way, there are some uses for
reencoding into the same format....
