Personally i like the 192kbs bit rate. I think that 320 is going over the top and means the file sizes are very large and you can only get a small amount of music into a certain space. Also, on the other end of the spectrum, 128 is not enough quality and can break up at higher volumes. The 192kbs is a happy medium in one way.
Plus which bitrate is the best?
I prefer Mp3 or AAC. They all perform well, but i use itunes and other such programs which download the files as standard in MP3.
Which is the best format?
I don't have too much experience with this, but did try it out for a while. I don't compress my music at all so i wouldn't really know Take a read here. This link gives a good summary of the various compression techniques, and goes into more detail than i could possibly offer.
Also is the Loseless good too?

However, I am not saying that the music that you listen to everyday should be broke down to those specs, in fact, at a 192KB rate, the quality is awesome, and the file is smaller than MP3 format, hence the emergence of ipods and other players.
The basic principle withMP3 is that 128KB is CD quality, meaning that in the compression process, frequencies above a certain level are removed, for the simple fact that the human ear has a difficult time processing those particular frequencies anyway. This is where .m4a comes in. The compression process is much more accurate in the removal of the "Noise" that we are not able to notice.
I have also heard that it's possible that DVD+RW will replace CD-R or CDRW, and I have played around a little bit with this. I burned a 4.7GB disc of music and it retained all the ID3 tags and quality. The only problem right now is the lack of equipment available for the disc to play on, as far as I know, they only work on PC's, but I could be wrong. So as much as I like the .m4a format, most all my music will stay as MP3's, and I will just wait till the technology catches up.
