    Yeah iTunes+ is AAC 192, significantly better quality than MP3's, but still not quite as nice as FLAC.
    I mostly do Bitcoin & DigiByte things these days, feel free to say hi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/dgb_chilling

    I hate how Apple and others are forcing us to accept a lower quality of music and yet the focus is on illegal downloads instead of offering a quality alternative

    Any lossless codec would do, there are a few of them. Depends what you do with your music as well. If you just carry it around on an ipod and listen to it over earbuds then 192 is probably all you ever need. I have a failry good stereo but even then at 192 and above I dont really hear a difference.

    I ripped all my CD's in lossless WMA so media centre can play them back, which was technically illegal until fairly recently. Glad they changed that stupid law.

    Yes but in the future you won't be able to get the quality in the first place once CD's stop selling
