It sure has a higher dynamic range. I'm not even sure what headroom means in the digital word. You could say it has none.

That would be subjective,no ?

64bit will help the sound of older and/or current plugins.
64 bit what, where ? The plugin sounds like it sounds,a 64 bit OS or host won't change that. Some may only use 32 bit float internally but could benefit from double precision but i suspect that is fairly rare.

Pro Tools 48bit Mix engine is enough to handle a 192 channel mix accurately? It would not have to be a 56bit, 64bit or even a 72bit mixer.
Of course it can.

In Pro Tools, as you know, On a TDM system, plugins handle like this
TDM = 24bit in to (If plugin is double precision) 48bit to 24 bit out
RTAS = 32bit in to (If plugin is double precision) 64bit to 32bit out
TDM to RTAS to TDM = 24bit in to 48bit to 24bit out, to 32bit in to 64bit to 32bit out, to 24bit in to 48bit to 24bit out.
So it is not good to use TDM to RTAS or RTAS to TDM as too many calculations will only make sound worst and/or Pro Tools mix engine can not handle
all these calculations and will only make your mix/recording worst.
Nonsense.

It is better to stay totally ITB then to use a summing mixer for width/depth/headroom. Minus color of course.
That would be subjective,no ?

Even with today's cpu's, there is no way that we could exceed the sound of old reverb units. (Lexicon 480L/PCM90 etc)
Complete nonsense.

Yes.
