With all FLAC I only have about 40GB of music. I have a small collection now that I've deleted all that DJ music.

I'd have to seriously prune my collection to even dream of having enough space for all FLAC...I'm running well over 200gb of music in mp3 as it is, haha.

Opus is way better than MP3.
AAC comes second, but has more compatibility.

Whatever format Google Play "high quality" streaming is. It's more than good enough for me. If I'm archiving any music it's usually variable bitrate MP3 (V0).
