Really? Never noticed that at least not for rates such as 48KHz or
32KHz. Anyway it plays anything the way it is played at anyones
computer, so it can serve as something like a reference. To use uncommon
samplerates I would use Software like MHWaveedit. Having uncommon
samplerates in end-user formats like OGG or MP3 makes no sense anyway....
