I know that lossless to lossless encoding has no degradation since it's just compression algorithms but I'm wondering since the dbpoweramp ALAC codec was reverse engineered from the iTunes one.

I'm ripping to FLAC using dbpoweramp and then converting it to ALAC so that it's compatible with iTunes. From here I convert the dbpoweramp ALAC to iTunes ALAC encoder. Is this OK or should I be using AIFF as the intermediary format.

I would just rip with iTunes but I like accurate with dbpoweramp

Why not just rip directly (for all intents and purposes) to ALAC using dBpoweramp?

Unless your eyes can hear, you cannot account for false negatives in sighted evaluations.
