What is the equivalent of 192kbps mp3 in AAC format? thinking of changing my music to AAC format.

You should really re-rip the CDs, or else you will just loose quality!

I'd say AAC 128 would be similar, but maybe go with 160 AAC to be safe!

I like to go for 320 AAC, it may be overkill in some ways but at least I know I am getting the best quality possible for compressed lossy files!

The file sizes of a 192 kbps MP3 and AAC file will be very close to identical. This is because both are using 192 kilobits per second to encode the music. The kilobits per second (kbps) is what determines the quality and file size of an audio file. So no matter what codec you use (MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, etc) you will always get generally the same file size if you encode at the same bit rate.

Teqnilogik is right - the different between the codec's is how much information do they save in the requested bit rate and how they determine what to keep and what to loose...
