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.

The amount of samples per second. All digital audio has a sample rate. Analog audio does not.

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.
