Audio Quality in Bluray Player

Dear friends, I need your kind help.
A little issue about the audio quality that I can play on my system, a Pioneer VSX-534 receiver, with a Blu-Ray Player LG BP450.
I read in the manual of my receiver that it can play, in PCM format (2 channels or multichannel), audios with a sample frequency of 32 to 192 kHz.
I also read in the manual of my bluray player that it plays (sends to the receiver) audio with a 32-48 kHz frequency sample for WMA files (as I show in the image below).
I think that, due to the limitations of my bluray player (according to his specifications, mentioned above), that I can't play a FLAC file, for example, with a 96 kHz frequency sample, let alone 192 kHz , as the maximum that it would play would be 48khz, as mentioned above. I have countless FLAC tracks with these parameters, and my receiver would be able to play them, but due to the limitations of my bluray, I cannot listen to them in my receiver with this frequency sample. Am I right?
But what makes me even more confused is that in the bluray player manual, in the Audio settings, three options are shown to choose the frequency sample: 48khz, 96khs and 192khz. (as I show in the image)
Why the hell do they offer the latter two (96khs and 192khz), if the device has a maximum frequency sample of only 48 kHz, as shown in audio format specifications at the end of the manual?
Do I have to buy another Bluray Player to listen to 96khs and 192khz tracks?


Thanks in advance,

Why would the limitation for a WMA file affect FLAC files? The player says it can output at 192khz, the 48khz max only affect the stated wma and mp3 files.
Have you actually tried the various frequencies to see what you get?
