You might want to take a look at sox - it offers a number of
conversion plugins that give you a lot of control over the algorithms
used and the results.  I don't really have a 192kHz source, so I can't
say how well it will do with your material, but I have used the
"resample" and the "polyphase" filters with good results on other
source material.

I've also found Ardour's to be great for what I've needed, though
again, never tried with 192kHz and never compared it with sox.
