Actually the technical data suggests that you should record at conservative levels in a 24bit system.. just make sure the lowest signal recorded is above the noise floor of the gear and ambient noise of the recording environment.

Using up more bit depth does not yield a high fidelity recording.

I've also found my mixes sound better when giving plug-ins a bit of room to breath, so to speak. Took me awhile though!
