M4A > WAV > M4A/MP3. How bad? 2006-05-30 16:19:02 i had some .m4a files, i decided i wanted to go back to .mp3 (long story) so i converted them to .wav with the intent of converting them to .mp3 (a sin, i know) and now i want to convert them back to .m4amy question is... if one were to convert an m4a file to a wav file and then back to an m4a file would there be a loss in quality? (probably yes) if YES, would it be a SIGNIFICANT loss in quality? as in if the music i'm talking about is classical music originally encoded at 192, would it sound icky after decoding and re-encoding?i'm a little new to the world of codecs and encoding and the inner workings of it all, so this might be a stupid question, i apologise in advance!thanks!
