    So ive been wondering.... What do you guys use when you import CD's into iTunes? I've been using lossless because it sounds so damn good, but it takes up SO much space!

    What file format do you guys use when importing?

    For the CDs I care about the most (and will be listening to the most), I go lossless. Otherwise, it's 320 kbps .mp3.

    It used to be 320kbps AAC, but now that I have 32GBs I do Apple Lossless.

    Lossless...on a BIG HD.
    On transfer to iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch I use a compressed format.

    Thats exactly what i'm doing! The AAC didnt sound bad but i could definitely tell a difference when i listened to the lossless version of the same songs. I wish i had a 64GB phone though because i have a feeling between HD video and lossless music files my phone will fill up fast! :rolleyes:

    You can have it on your computer as lossless but set it up to be something different as it transfers to your phone? How do you do this? I'm pretty iTunes illiterate lol.

    Yeah the 64 GB is going to be the main reason I upgrade to an iPhone 5.

    I do 192k MP3. I stick with Mp3 because it is the most compatible with car CD players, DVD players, and others. I don't think there is much difference in quality between AAC and MP3, and that way I can burn an MP3 CD at any time and play it in a lot of different devices. AAC is not the same way.
