Yeah, Apple Lossless isn't really Lossless when it comes to longer songs that are say 12+ minutes, the quality gets drastically lower. For instance, I just ripped a song that was 20 minutes long and the quality came out 300 kbps. Anyone who's done VBR knows this is the case with MP3's and such as well. So yeah, what do people do when you want CBR at the highest possible quality? Or is there an alternative where I don't have to deal with degradation of quality with long songs?
