Well... AAC was still relatively new when I ripped all my music... and I haven't felt the need to go back and re-rip all that music. At 160 bit rate... I have 40+ gigs of music. Figure what that's going to be at 256. Lot's of space and a ton of time.<br><br>Aside from AAC... 160 seemed to be the sweet spot for me in the quality-of-sound vs. space-on-HD discussions that were going on back then.<br><br>[image][/image]
