    There are several tools/software that helps to convert .m4a to .wav file. In general, these software help to convert files with satisfactory level. You did not mention, either you asked for free/with cost. If you wanted it for free, you can try with Audacity, the concept is here: http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/tutorial_how_to_import_files_from_itunes.html.

    Thank you!... I already have a free option called Xact.
    Actually, being more especific my existencial problem is this:
    I´m a dj and have huge collection of music in good quality that I bought either in vynils, cds or digital download.
    Since a few years Im Djing with my computer and Serato and since then I´ve been transforming all my files (wav, aiff) into .m4a after reading that is a format that can compress in smaller size files without losing quality.
    Huge work if you think I´ve been collecting music for 17 years.
    Now, I have a few oportunities to play in clubs and realize that M4A is not accepted for standart Pioneer Cd players so I´m thinking about going back to old format (wav and aiff) but before start this massive work process I want to be sure that is possible to get back the good quality of my music.
    Probably I already did it wrong.
    Would love to hear your thoghts.

    As far as my information, flac files may not cd audio files. Most CD players (as you mentioned) does not play this type of file format, unless designed for that. It is better to choose/convert .wav format, & after that burn to create audio CD. Also it is possible to select flac files & burn to cd as an audio CD.
