Mac conversion of WMA Lossless to ALAC

I need a solution on Mac for conversion of WMA Lossless to ALAC.

At the time of the previous requests I see here, it seems there was none known.

Does anyone know one that they have actually verified? Thanks.

Thanks. I forgot to say: I need an end-user app.

I have to warn against saratoga's suggestion. I have not seen FFmpeg's WMA decoder to manage to produce lossless results from any WMA yet. And they don't support 24-bit files. I just verified with a compile from latest sources and same issue is present. A test file has over 20000 samples missing from the end. That's almost half a second and can cause very audible issues.

Edit: only tool I know that losslessly decodes all WMA Lossless files is wmal2pcm.exe, a Windows command line utility.
