It will be interesting and maybe usefull to see what bitrates people use mostly for different generation codecs like MP3, AAC, Vorbis etc.


I understand I post this poll in wrong subforum as I haven't rights to create poll in Poll section. Please, don't remove this interesing poll.

I must seem like the oddball here. For my LP transferring project, I've been using Apple Lossless for long term storage. When I actually listen to something on the go (read: transfer to the iPod), I convert to AAC 256.

I live in a Mac household, so I have not found a way to make FLAC a convenient storing and streaming solution for my house. With Apple Lossless, I can store, catalog, and stream everything around the house.
