Calling digital audiophiles
Im thinking about taking the Ipod plunge. I have over 750 cds that would need transferring.
My hold up has always been the audio quality loss going to the "MP3" or like format. I know CDs can have harsh sound at times but over all I like the sound quality. I like being able to hear fingers hitting keys and other nuances.
So my question is.

What is the current state of art,ipod able, audio file type and how does it compare to CD standard? How big is that file as compared to what most folks use.
RIP ROMAN

I never noticed any unwanted noise. I have the same music on my Black Berry. Only gripe is the time it takes to burn the CD.Welcome my son, Welcome to the machine

I have my music on my iPhone and it all sounds great to me. I even plug my iPhone into my car stereo and have no issues. But like the previous poster said, the buring time is long so grap your favorite drink and burn away.Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends

90+% of people can't hear the difference between a 256K AAC (what iTunes uses by default) and the lossless original (CD).

In iTunes under Edit, Preferences, General Tab - Import Settings you can change the encoder from AAC to Apple Lossless, which would give you an uncompressed rip.

I'd suggest ripping some songs you know very well in both AAC and Lossless to see if you can hear the difference. The lossless file will be approximately 2.5x to 3x the size of the 256K AAC file.
