I like the idea of iTunes Match, but I have a bunch of files (not all) ripped into Apple Lossless that I play from my AppleTV to my stereo. I don't want these to be replaced (at least on my Mac) by lower quality (256kbps) files. on my iOS devices i want the AAC files but not on my Mac.
I have no idea how this works.. how does the scan and swap actually work? does it just scan and make reference to the files to iCloud but doesn't actually touch you local files unless you do a download to your Mac from iCloud?
- is there a way to sheild Apple Lossless files from being replaced by the 256kbps files?
- will my files only be replaced if I actually download them to my Mac from the cloud or do all the files?
