Yes, that is a very good way to do it because the response is equally fast up and down. It is used here for quick amplitude control: http://mike-wsm.org.uk/ldo.html Alas this version exists only on paper, but the original sold successfully during the 1970s as the Radford LDO3 et seq.

So, to reconstruct the sampled signal which is more preferable and why? 1)Envelope detector or 2)Low pass filter. I am not able to differentiate this.

Sample-and-hold. As in my circuit.
