Hey Everyone,


Is there a quality gain if you convert wma 128 or 196 to mp3 256 or 320?


My wife has tons of music she has collected but most is in the midrange wma settings. Is there any thing to be gained other than the mp3 compatibility by doing an "upconversion' to mp3(lame) 256 or 320? I was thinking of using Mediamonkey or Quintessential Player which both can do it.


Thanks

You cannot gain quality by conversion. Converting would degrade the quality slightly becuase of the decode/re-encode losses. If you have the original source CD, converting that should give you better quality.
