The 1748 DAC supports it...is there any technical barriers in the design of the SB that are forcing the 24/48 limitation, or on the outputs at least?

If not, it would be great to have firmware rev to enable it.

Probably processing power.

The Transporter uses the same CPU, but "overclocked" to 325 MHz from 250 MHz. It does handle 24/96 natively, but you run out of CPU cycles if you use ReplayGain + the spectrum analyzer, so this is the limit of its capability at 325 MHz - not a hope at 250 MHz then.
