Itunes plus is the same exact thing used in the itunes store to encode.

Except for mastered for itunes titles which take the high resolution files and they are carefully downsampled and abxed to minimalize the impact of audio compression *not sound compression*

You cannot be sure anything was done carefully or that anything is ABXed. Furthermore the idea that people are tweaking the audio beyond preventing unwanted audible clipping in order to minimize coding artifacts is quite dusturbing. Claiming to have done so should instantly raise suspicion of ignorance as well as incompetence.
