I understand, but if I push high frequency content first and then lower it after the AD conversion, I should get a lower effective noise floor while profiting from the dithering anyway. Of course I would get less dynamic range, but since ultrasonic content seems to be pretty low anyway usually, that wouldn't be much an issue.
