Hi All,

My current set-up of converting my CDs are dBpa -> AIFF/ALAC then XLD to True VBR AAC highest quality.

However, I see that ALAC file sizes are not that much different from these XLD-produced files so I am considering dumping AAC all together (apart from iTuens purchases of course) and use ALAC files in iTunes and any iOS device. Also, converting to AAC adds another conversion step and it would be very nice to just keep one original ripped file as it is and cut out the AACs.

Question is - how much of additional battery drain will ALAC files cause?

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Is there a way to apply soundcheck manually for the music in my ipod?
