88.2K to 44.1K conversion is "cleaner", because it is dividable.
you are right about different sample rates having different effect, but its worth pointing out, dithering is strictly a bit depth operation and doesn't actually happen when you convert sample rate...
you dither when you change bit depth like 24 bit to 16 bit. it has no bearing on sample rate.
(dithering adds really low-level noise to the signal, it's cool when you get in a controlled environment and really hear it demonstrated).
you are not wrong though, i have found even working at 48k sometimes changes my sound for the better, even such a slight adjustment.
