I love instrumental music, especially classical music, and I'm new to the "audio world". My question is simple maybe "stupid": what's the best lossy format (and bitrate) for my audios? Since it's not convenient for me to always keep large files on my laptop, I'd rather store lossless files in my external harddrive instead.
BTW. If there're multiple choices, could you please show me the differences between them? What are the advantages and disadvantages? I have no idea about what appropriate bitrate i should use.
