Mac OSX Audio MIDI Setup question. Only showing up to 96,000hz instead of 192,000hz

I'll admit i'm not exactly an audio expert here, but I noticed something that I would like to figure out.

 

I recently purchased a Woo Audio Wa7d and on my mac computer running OS X 10.10, I can only go up to 96000hz. My choices are:

 

44,100hz

48,000hz

88,200hz

96,000hz

 

I am currently working with someone from woo audio to get my USB connection to be recognized, but in the middle of trying to get that figured out, he sent me a screenshot from his laptop connecting to the Wa7d and his options show:

 

44,100hz

48,000hz

88,200hz

96,000hz

176,400hz

192,000hz

 

Is there something i'm missing here? Do those options only appear under certain circumstances and/or while using certain connections? I still only show up to 96,000hz on my other sources in Audio MIDI as well. 

 

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

Was the screenshot from a Mac or Windows? I noticed they have specific drivers for the WA-7 on Windows on the Woo website.

Clearly - as you say yourself - your Mac is not 'seeing' the DAC, therefore the only options you'll see are those of the built-in DAC. I think.

That could be it. I'm gonna check on another computer later on. Thanks.
