Nope and it was stated at least seven times that -18 dBFS wasn't a hard rule and that most of us don't care - it was actually the underlying point of many, if not all of the replies.

I can also say with certainty that if I crank my A-Designs P1 and there is no reduction of that signal before it hits that ADC, it's going clip and it's going to remain clipped because a ~20 bit ADC != 32 bit floating point file.

Keep an eye on the goalposts, slippery little fellas they are.
