Ideally, what is the best way to digitally store all of my classical music and jazz CDs for the long term?

I have about 200 CDs of classical and jazz music. I'd like to move these to a more sustainable format. Honestly, I can't tell much of a difference between lossy and lossless formats unless I listen really hard. But thinking about the longterm, would it be better to burn all the files in lossless format (and if so, which one?) to a hard drive?
I think burning all that to my laptop would take up most of my drive space (only 200 gigs free) but I could put it all on an external drive. Ideally, what would you do?
