re: 320AAC and AIFF: Chacun a son gout/your mileage may vary.

re: AIFF/WAV:  They're not the same by a long shot.  Why do you even
mention them in the same breath?

re: anyone is using AIFF/WAV on the iPod
I use AIFF all the time and I'm perfectly happy with them.

I have a 40G IPod.
I don't really need the top 500 operas at my fingertips.

Right now I've got about 6000 tracks.

Your mileage may vary.

True, but I don't think anyone, unless they have a
very high end system, will be able to tell the
difference between 320AAC and lossless.

I don't think anyone is using AIFF/WAV on the iPod,
now that we have a lossless format. Apple Lossless is
as good as AIFF and the size is much smaller, which
means that you can get more music on your iPod.
