There is, don’t get me wrong. There is also a difference between analogue and digital in the failure mode when that red light comes on.

CDs are 16 bits deep because that more than covers the human ear. We can use deeper bit depth for head room when live and to push the noise floor down for when we are going to do hundreds of post processing tasks in a recording environment…

Because I almost exclusively do live work I tend towards buying headroom with my bit depth, rather than buying a deeper noise floor for post processing.

It’s not that one is right and the other wrong – They are different things that can be achieved with the tools available.
