I'm a long-time lurker and quasi-newbie in the field of digital audio. I
enjoy this list greatly because of the friendly atmosphere and the
knowledge of the participants, so I hope that my question will be not be
perceived as to out of place.

The question is this: what recommendations can you give for converting
stereo music files at 24/88.2 and 24/192 to 24/96 with no loss of musical
 Or is such a thing not possible for an amateur (a cheap but not completely
impecunious one?) I have Windows machines and am adept with software.

I have not been able to locate any good information that answers this
question directly. Many recommend dbpoweramp and other software, but I
cannot verify whether there is any loss of musical quality. I have seen
articles describing how SCR takes place in the process of creating
professional master recordings - including conversions to analogue,
dithering, &c.

Thanks for your help,
