I think if it was unsold stock of an outdated sound card, they wouldn't 
be selling it for so much money.

My opinion is that they're still manufacturing it, not selling age-old 
unsold stock.

Like the Volkswagen Beetle I used to have. VW would go years and years 
between changing anything about it. It was a good way to maximize return 
on investment if they didn't have to spend money retooling factories 
every year because some ego-centric designer decided the car needed 
"that special touch" that only they could give it. ;)

Well, the rest of my setup certainly doesn't operate at 96K, nor do I 
have the equipment quality (instruments, mics, etc) that would benefit 
from recording at 96K.
