As far as I can tell, 96k and 192k works in wine without problem, 24
bits doesn't entirely work, as I didn't implement volume changing. If
you do that it can be enabled in winecfg. Just tweak the registry to
set sound to 24 bits and fix the volume error that pops up, it
shouldn't be that hard. Bonus if you can do it for 32 bits as well.

More work would be implementing >2 speakers in directsound, that
doesn't work yet and since I don't have such a speaker setup I can't
test it. Direct routing to the jack api might work, but I never tried
