I have a lot of music in my iCloud Music Library, most of it matched to 256 kb/s AAC files in iTunes Match. If I were to sync music to my phone by connecting it to iTunes on my desktop, I could choose "Convert Higher Bit Rate Songs To (192/128/etc.) kb/s". However, with iCloud Music Library turned on on my iPhone, it seems there's no option to download them at anything less than 256 kb/s, which is eating up a significant chunk of space on my phone.

From what I've found (e.g. here and here), it doesn't seem there's any way to do this (other than syncing directly to iTunes). Is that true, or am I missing a setting somewhere?
