    I'm not so fussy about my mp3's, but I do encode them at 384 / 256k where I can. I do notice a difference between that and the standard.
    anything less then 320kbs mp3 can get pretty bad when you have really high end tweeters. mp3's are awesome for ipods and boomboxes, but FLAC is transparent on any system. when i can, i always buy or download in flac format.

    I'm with you...any compressed, lossy audio is for portable players, period!
    I prefer FLAC as well, but I convert it all over to WMA Pro 9 lossless, simply for the reason of compatibility with Windows (ID tag, etc...)

    its not a bad idea, because even with the flac filters and plugins installed, you still dont get full tag support with flac and windows media player. i want flac to become standard though, thats really the only reason i dont use wma lossless... best part is though no matter what format eventually becomes the most popular, either side can re-encode to it and not worry about anything. lossless is the only way to go imo.

    agreed. probably the most "bang for your buck" in doing this. And as others said, a car is not really conducive to studio sound. It's like trying to polish a turd
