An interesting comparison MP3 vs AAC vs FLAC vs CD at Stereophile.

AAC just edges MP3 it seems.

Anything more in a car is just lost through engine, wind and tyre noise.

Whilst this may be true, not supporting FLAC means that one has to maintain two libraryís or at least transcode to MP3 those albums that you want in the car.

I guess itís not a big deal to do with say dBpa but it would be more convenient not to have to do this.
