View Full Version : Which format should I rip to?

I just switched to Mac and I do not currently own an iPod but plan to get one in the next few weeks, most likely.

Currently I have most of my music in Windows Media format for use on my iRiver H120.

Since I still have a PC desktop and laptop to use with it I will most likely rip my CD's on a different machine for use with it but I want to start putting my songs on my PowerBook for eventual use on an iPod.

My question is, what format should I use, that will work with iPod, that will give me a good balance between quality and size. I'm not the kind of "audiophile" that just has to have things at insanely high bitrates or I can't enjoy the music.

So, what setting do I rip into iTunes with?

AAC AIFF Apple Lossless?

Which one?

I already gave an answer in that thread
