Can someone tell me why Tidal MQA shows as 96Khz when using a non-MQA DAC?

I'm curious about this.  On one of my DACs--the non-MQA one--MQA files stream at 96Khz.  Any intel will be appreciated!

Tidal does stream many albums at 24/192. 96 is not their limit.
However 24/96 will be the highest you will see on a non MQA dac, as it cannot complete the full MQA unfolding.

It will still sound mighty fine though!
