I can't tell you what is causing this but you probably won't get a 
noticeable improvement by switching from 48 to 96 kHz.  Your speaker 
system (and your ears) are probably incapable of resolving >20kHz 
signals in a live PA-type situation.  Audio professionals ( mixers, 
mastering engineers, etc - not manufacturers ) are still undecided 
whether higher sampling rates is a good thing.  If you are looking for 
higher fidelity sound, your time will be much better spent examining 
the gain stages of your system ( matching the impedances of inputs and 
outputs, etc ) rather than trying to get hicher frequency response 
though your DSP box.
