50-70MB a song is not a big deal when I'll be rolling at least a 128GB SSD. That's probably a little less than 2,000 songs.

As for a DAC, don't need a separate one. Did you look at the head unit I'll be using? The Pioneer DEH-PRS80 has three Burr-Brown 24-bit DACs (one for each frequency), along with a 28-bit floating-point DSP.

I won't go MP3 when I have that sort of DAC power built-into the head unit already. The sound quality will be as if it was reading from a CD.
