Good luck with that... XD I personally don´t buy CD´s to rip them into awful sounding mp3´s.

It´s quite a lot in my opinion too... I´ll probably gather a lot more during the years to come, but I don´t know if it will be that much. I mostly buy only stuff I really really like, unless the record is too cheap to be left in the store. =D

CD, ALAC, and 256-320 AACs.

Oh, and all the <192 MP3s from my pre-hifi days :/

As for digital formats; whatever they come in after being ripped and spread by pirates.

I have never bought a digital album, not even rare releases that have been out of print for ages, but widely available through online sellers of digital albums. I'd rather have an "illegal" copy, while searching for the real thing because the rewarding thrill and excitement when tracking down and finally receiving the disc is definitely worth it.

I selected '256-320 kbps' but have over 2000 CD's that I still listen directly from. For computer listening, at least, the goal would be to stick to this bitrate. I cannot tell between this and lossless/FLAC/wav, no matter how hard I try.
