The amount of samples per second. All digital audio has a Sample rate . Analog audio does not. (well.. it does.. electrons and such, but thats async and extremely fast)

The sample rate is measured in samples per second, often denoted as "Hz" or in "kHz". 1 kHz is the same as 1000 Hz, so you can describe the samplerate of a CD as "44100 Hz" or "44.1 kHz". Both are correct.
