Well, i've finally decided that I'm going to get the new Ipod. I just can't resist it, i've never had a DAP before, well other than my age-old mini disc player. I think its time i've gotten rid of it. But on to my question, i don't know what format i should rip my songs in. I was thinking, that on my favorite CD's i can rip them into the highest quality they have. But what is the highest quality? Choices are: -320kbps MP3 -320kbps AAC or Apple Lossless. And one question on Lossless, does it play gapless? I'm leaning torwards Apple Lossless, size is not really an issue, since i'll only be doing this to 15-20 cd's. The rest will probably be 192kbps MP3, like they already are.
