I think generally the 48 bit integer mode ("39" bit is what we call it, since it uses 9.39 bits like a certain other DAW) is preferable in many respects to the 32 bit floating point mode... primarily just for the additional bits of mantissa (having sacrificed some range at the extremes). At any rate, 64 bit FP ftw.
