I think Apple Lossless is great, I use it with iTunes and I think the file size is pretty decent and the reality is that despite all the doom & gloom scenarios posted here, there are tools to convert it to another format should something radical happen in the industry. But the real fact is that if you use iTunes it is the way to go and that apple is by far and away the leader in that business and probably will be for a while.

very desirable because I can tag and manage the files using iTunes.

Anyone have any considerations before I go re-ripping a bunch of music?
