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!

That's fine.

NB: the word "if" wasn't put in bold by accident!

Hehe. smile.gif Yes, I did notice that. Thanks for the response greynol. Appreciated.

*EDIT*

Apologies to the mods also. I noticed the links to the actual files were removed. I did wonder about that. I gather I should have just provided a snippet of the tracks and not the whole song. Again, apologies for the oversight.
