You´re speaking about aliasing distortion.
The 48 k soundfile needs to be fed through an antialias filter with a
cutoff frequency of approx 20 kHz after being sample rate converted from
48 to 44.1 kHz to avoid aliasing components.
If the filter in the SR converter is done well no such disortion will
In fact well done SRC is absolutely transparent to my ear.
