I agree with Larson. Start with some ABX test of, say, 128 kbps. This might already be so close to transparency for you that it suffices. It certainly is for me for "casual listening" (for "serious listening" I use FLAC).

By the way, in a private blind MUSHRA test nero vs. iTunes which I ran last year at ~128 kbps VBR, iTunes won by a small but significant margin. So if you decide to use something near that bit rate, you should give iTunes 10.2 a try in order to get a "complete picture".

Have you been able to abx between aac cbr 320 and flac? (I'd assume you do it for other reasons; perhaps you're too aware of the "guts" of lossy codecs.)
