The Nyquist frequency , named after the Swedish-American engineer Harry Nyquist, is always exactly half the sampling frequency of the samplerate. This is the highest possible frequency that you can play back.

So for 44100 Hz samplerate, the highest frequency you can play is 22050 Hz. At 96000 Hz the highest possible frequency is 48000 Hz.
