This is a great solution, and one that I also considered. My main concern is when a new standard comes along. Quality would suffer if I were to convert my 320 MP3 to another lossy format for whatever next generation devices that come along.
So now I've just started using MP3 320. Its high enough quality for general use (higher than needed) and is the most compatible. Also saves a lot on file size by cutting out a lot of the stuff us humans cant hear xD
You'll probably see more devices supporting ALAC now that it's free and open source. It's already supported by a bunch of audio players on Android. Plus, thankfully it's not too much of a hassle to reconvert your files at a later point without degrading the audio quality of your files or losing any metadata, so that's always an option. I wouldn't worry too much about finding a "final solution" at this point. The important part is opting to go with a lossless format in the first place.

looks like Poweramp is the best app for playing ALAC files (actually a lot of people say it's the best media player for android period)
This is what I was thinking. I want to go with ALAC, but then I have to figure out how to easily get my 1000+ ALAC files onto my android phones/tablets.

For your iDevices, in iTunes on the summary page there's an option to automatically have any higher quality files you're synching be converted to the AAC format at either 128kbps or 256kbps (iirc).
Is there a way to rip CDs into Apple as lossless, and then auto convert to a format such as MP3 for transfer to my phone? I would rather not have to store two copies of every song.
