Moving entire FLAC collection to MPC, Will I have any regrets?

After ABX'ing a couple of samples in MP3 320kbps, I have come to the conclusion where MP3 is useless - some artifacts are really there. I know that MPC has got not much hardware support (if any) but let's suppose I buy a RockBox supported iPod, then it's a start isn't it?

Since the FLAC's are huge and would take very much space to store them (about 50 DVD-Rs) it's convenient to convert them to MPC -q7. Even though like the word "BrainDead" - is there any reason to use q8?

Try using ABR MP3 with raised lowpass instead of CBR. I cannot explain it but it sounded better to me than CBR.
