Thanks for digging up the press releases, I'm not sure what that means though. If it's a 24/192 DAC it shouldn't have any trouble playing anything at that rate and that includes 96kHz. Unless Theta means something else of course, but it doesn't surprise me they're stated as 24/192 as that's pretty much the standard on high end processors now.

Well, I guess that depends on what you throw at it. dts-HD MA supports up to 8 channels of 24/96 audio, but it also supports 6 channels with 24/192. So if you end up with a 6-channel 24/192 track, you'd have to downsample it to 24/96 without the proper DACs.
