*Please note, requesting HD WAVs or MFiT WAVs is only applicable if your source files supplied to us are either identical or exceed the requested format. For example: There is no advantage to supplying 16bit 44k WAVs and asking for up-sampled 24/44 MFiT as it will most likely be rejected by iTunes. Save yourself the expense!
