    That last sentence regarding AAC... Yes, I feel that of all the 'lossy' formats out there, AAC (m4a) is superior to the rest of them.. and I can believe that a 256 AAC can sound very, very close to the original lossless.
    I read many papers and articles on this very subject years ago, and what I read confirmed, in my mind, that the folks who invented it took the most important things about audio into consideration, and came up with , like I said, the best codec out there..
    As always YMMV.. This is just my (educated) opinion..
