Here is a link about the Audition 3.0 Audio Hardware. The best thing you can do to make sure the quality of your audio is good relies on two items:
1. Decent/Good Sound Card
2. Good Microphone
You can set your sample rates a bit higher but unless you have decent hardware that you are recording on it wont help much. If I could recommend a simple/cheap fix for either of these issues it would be these two devices:
1. Soundblaster X-FI 5.1 USB Sound Device - This external "Sound Card" will give your recording a bit of a boost from standard laptop plugins as it records at a better qualtiy. Check your laptop model and see what it records at. This one records at 24-bt/96kHz. If your laptop matches that or is better, than you don't need this device. (General Price is around $50.00)
2. CAD U37 Microphone - This microphone is a cheaper "Studio Quality" microphone and can usually be found online with kits that include Pop filters. (General Price is around $50.00)
If you could post what sound card you're are using/is built into your laptop and what microphone you are using.
