m4a play fine on all my apple iOS devices and Walkman Hires player - 
although sometimes I've noticed a little distortion on the Walkman.

Simply convert to MP3 at high bitrate, it'll give pretty much the same 
--aactomp3 --mp3vbr 0

get_iplayer could do with a FLAC/"Apple Lossless" output for maximum
