AFAIR R-1 does not allow ultrasonic recording.

R-4 does, but it's much more expensive.

The new Tascam HD-P2 records at 24/96 kHz but it's quite expensive, and despite
96 kHz converters, the published frequency response is not very impressive.

Another option is Marantz PMD-671, though some people have complained about 
noisy mic preamps.

M-Audio MicroTrack 2496 is cheap and records at 96 kHz, but the frequency
response in unknown. M-Audio did not publish it. Also, be advised that
this unit suffered from numerous flaws - Google for it. Some might have
been corrected by software updates, others most certainly not: like
substandard Phantom Power voltage.
