With hard drives the price they are there's no reason to use a lossy
compression scheme at all anymore for home audio - only portable players
really justify it. For home I keep everything in ripped Flac on a nice
large drive and stream via a squeezebox. Having the Flac around also makes
it trivial to re-rip to whatever lossy format of the day turns out to be
relevant for portable players.
