Consumer products, of course.  There is no reason why desktop speakers
shouldn't be able to support 24 bits at 96 kHz.  Furthermore, even the
cheapest mainboard chipsets support 7+1 channels at 192 kHz, so it would
be hard to advertise a USB upgrade that wouldn't be able to match those
numbers.

And for a purely technical reason: High-speed USB audio devices do not
eat as much bandwith on the bus, so they work better together with other
devices.
