Hi to all,

but the songs that are matched from iTunes Match and downloaded into our computer are the same of the iTunes Store or there are some differences?

I'm not sure that they are the same songs, do you know?

There is some chances to test it?

Thanks

There's no reason to believe they are not the same songs. Skepticism is a good thing, but it would be logistically silly for Apple to keep separate tracks to trick you with. The whole point in "matching" the songs is for Apple to not have to host as many of everyone's files on their servers.

Edit: typo.

This was discussed with a fair amount of detail recently. Please search the forum instead of opening redundant discussions. This topic will now close.
