Here's something to get you started - http://www.head-fi.org/t/570621/flac-vs-320-mp3
Be very careful picking your way through the BS when people claim massive differences between properly encoded lossy files and lossless (I'm talking about 256acc / mp3 320). You'll find most people who say they can easily tell them apart have never performed a properly volume matched abx test (and this is actually very easy to set-up - all you need is foobar 2000, the abx plugin, and a decent ripper and encoder).
My advice - read some threads (search function is great), and rather than ask opinions, perform an abx yourself.
You'll probably find you are like most of us - that aac256 / mp3 320 encoded properly is pretty much transparent when tested under controlled situation.
