my recent rips have been done with Max : WavPack lossy at 512kbps.

then, I transcode them into ogg vorbis Q3 for portable and/or AAC in itunes.

What I like is fast encoding and fast transcoding while having a good size/quality ratio for both archive and portable use.
Do I need to pay attention to noise, even with those overkilling 512kb bitrates ?

I don't want lossless because it's too big and I'm not keen on blind tests.

thank you.

512k was flawless even in the earlier days without psy modeling or joint stereo - using the high mode .
In reality, You would be hard pressed to abx anything @ 400k these days with a strong setting like -hx4. I'd go even further and say that you can take things down to 350 k without sacrificing much quality as we now have basic psymodeling as in dynamic noise shaping + auto joint stereo. With the 4.50 encoder I find 270 k gives more or less a similar quality to 180 k traditional encoder. In addition, Guruboolez found that transcoding wavpack 350..400k was very close to perfection.
