RE: Wma to Mp3 conversion results?

But the issue in the first place was that the quality of such a conversion
is poor. Converting to WAV first will allow one to listen to the WAV and
decide if the quality is acceptable at that point, and THEN work with LAME
to get an acceptable MP3. With a direct conversion -- although it's
faster -- it's impossible to tell where the audible artifacts are being

Perhaps after working with the 2 step conversion and getting acceptable
results, I would consider working with a 1 step method, but only if the
results were as good.
