Bit late with this but I thought Apple's m4a codec was lossless.

m4a is a container rather than a codec.
If the contents are aac then it's lossy, if the contents are alac ("Apple Lossless") then it's lossless.

Forgive the possibly stupid question, but how would you go about checking if it was AAC or ALAC within the container? I have a a few m4a that I had assumed were lossless but now feel a bit unsure about them.
Appreciate you pointing me in the right direction. I'm very grateful.

Sorry. I would have completely understood if you'd written LMGTFY! :oops: I thought it might be more complex than that. Thanks again for your help - and your patience!
