What soundcards/devices are there that only allow a frequency of 3 kHz?
Even the lowest frequency of the STE was already 6.25 kHz, and this was
20 years ago! Since 3kHz also really sounds awful, I suggest to
increase the lowest frequency to 6 kHz.

I'm also not sure about the 96000 Hz ... the sound buffers that Hatari
uses are only tested with 44.1 kHz so far, so they might be too small
for using such high frequencies. Does anybody have a soundcard that can
do 96 kHz to test whether this works fine with Hatari?
