    How can i Put Lossless Audio from Itunes on my Phone, meanwhile have access to Apple Music, in order to copy over the Itunes Lossless files I have to shut off Icloud library which I need on to have access to Apple music and my music in the cloud, and is it smart enough to know if I have the album on my device in lossless not to show the matched version, I could go to Downloaded music only i guess but then no access to apple music

    I suggest you do an automated double-blind listening test on yourself. You cannot hear the difference between lossless and 256kbps AAC, you just can't. Get over the lossless thing, you're wasting space on your phone, and wasting time and energy chasing ultimate sound quality.

    I can definitely hear the difference especially on older music where there are isolated channels, what I can only call the ambience of the music gets thrown into the bit bucket

    Probably not what you are looking for, but consider a third party music app that lets you add your lossless files directly into the app.

    Differentiating subtle differences in SQ between exact same source masters in different codecs usually requires a detected audiophile with some training and very intense and patient listening. Almost never applies to casual iPhone listeni

    No offense but your description indicates you are not an audiophile. While you may have a strong subjective belief that you can hear a difference it is unlikely you could consistently in a controlled DBT without proper training (and this applies to everyone and not just you). You must know each codecs technical weaknesses and carefully listen for them to present themselves. This takes a depth of knowledge and extreme concentrated listening under controlled conditions using quality equipment.

    DBT are very hard to implement (requires at least 2 other people and proper switching equpment) and I'm sure you haven't. Here is an easy (not a true DBT of course) way to do a SBT listening test.
