Confused by results of my first ABX test..., Vorbis file better when encoded from 24/96 rather than 16/44.1 FLAC?

My first ABX test here, so be gentle with me! Basically what I've done is as follows...

I have two lossless FLAC files, one @ 24/96 the other @ 16/44.1. I have then used OggDropXPd v1.9.0 aoTuV Beta 5.7 to encode each file (-q 5). When played back the .ogg file encoded from the 24/96 FLAC sounds better. To test I used the ABX comparator in foobar2000. The results were as follows;



Do these results confirm that the .ogg file encoded from the 24/96 FLAC is indeed of better quality than the one encoded from the 16/44.1 FLAC and if so, how is this audible to the human ear? Having read the forums I was under the impression that anything above 16/44.1 was pointless. Now, possibly I'm going wrong somewhere, maybe with regards the encoding.

Any advice would be most appreciated.

*EDIT*

Just realised a log file can be saved after ABXing in foobar2000! Doh!

There is no need to resort to arguments over semantics.

If you acquired copyrighted material through unlawful channels then you will not earn much respect around these parts.

Where is it implied that I have "acquired copyrighted material through unlawful channels"? Just to be clear, I own the actual album and have had it digitized by a third-party.

I hope that clears up any confusion.
