If you use Dirac with fullrange stereo speakers in 2.0 configuration it will be downsampled to 96kHz.
In any other configuration including 2.1 it will be downsampled to 48kHz.

If I'm not wrong, Datasat downsample to 96/24.
Dirac Live on PC is capable of 192/24, but it lacks bass management, of course.
For me, 96/24 is quite enough, but in 2.1 configuration.
There is a number of 96/24 recordings and also DSD/SACD which do sound somewhat better than appropriate 44.1/16.
And if I build a high quality combined Hi-Fi and HT system, I would like to be able to reproduce them.
Of course, I would rather choose well recorded and produced 44.1/16 than mediocre 96/24, but well recorded and produced 96/24 could sound really fantastic on appropriate system.
BTW, with downsample to 48kHz hi-res Tidal loses its purpose.
For price range and expected quality of NAD T758 v3, I don't find downsampling to 48kHz a problem.
But for M17 v2 (and Arcam 850 / 860), hmmmm...
