    What is the right combination of search parameters to create a smart playlist that contains only songs that are matched (via iTunes Match) and can be deleted to replace my CD rip with Apple's recording?

    I found this article http://www.macworld.com/article/116...w-to-upgrade-tracks-to-itunes-match-fast.html but that seems to rely solely on the bit rate essentially, and I have some of my own rips that are 256kbs.

    That article is quite old now.

    Today it's quite easy.

    Make a Smart Playlist with the condition "iCloud status" is "Matched".

    In the resulting playlist, select all, right click and click remove download.

    Then select them all and right click > download.

    That should do it.
