i was using apple lossless because it's good to know it's *lossless* and will be backed up and outlive my CD's. the only problem is, it's also *unsupported* by devices like the PS3, XBOX, and windows media player. i don't want to be tied to apple players. also, i don't claim to be a super-audiophile. i just want to encode them in something modern, archival quality (even if i can't hear the difference!) with wide-ranging compatibility. so what do you think: 320k AAC, 320K MP3, or WAV? right now i'm looking at the 320k AAC *if* it's a good enough codec. whatchu think?
