i guess then there is no real difference in quality between all these decoders?

Some decoders are a bit dodgy, and noticeably worse than others (eg. Xaudio). However the ones mentioned are all pretty good AFAIK.

Yeah, I know...but I was asking if there is no difference between quality encoders like mpg123 and Apollo?

The files output by different decoders will almost certainly not be identical. However try to ABX them if you think you can hear a difference, and stick with the one you like best.
