I mostly listen to classical music, so require pretty sound fidelity.

I have a computer runing iTunes shooting digital pcm through usb to a very good receiver.

Has anyone experienced using compression file to enjoy high fidelity classical music? what are the comparison between, mp3 @320, aac @256 or 320, apple lossless? what which bitrate do you hear the difference for AAC or MP3?

I think you will find more about audio compression at
There are listening tests conducted there which may help you in your choice. However, for your own preferences it is better to conduct a listening test yourself.

If space (size) is not a concern, use a lossless format.
