    Hi,

    I need to import .wma track on my mac.
    How can I convert them without decreasing the quality?

    Try EasyWMA. Just to name one here. ;)

    I already tried EasyWMA.
    Does the sound quality of different converters differ or is it the same?

    What output format and bitrate should I choose?

    Much higher will be much nicer. 128kbps just nice.

    I think the .wma files are 192 kbit/s, so I guess I shouldn't pick a higher bitrate?

    Higher bitrate will get you more your file size. Don't think it will give you any different for sound quality. Then, try 192kbps instead. LOL, you have options and listen to. Not me. All is yours. ;)

    But will the quality be the same no matter what program I use?
    And which audio format is the best?

    For a normal user, mp3 of 128-192kbps CBR would be sufficient. If you are an audiophile, you may want to look into FLAC for music files as they are lossless (along with secure CD ripping with dbpoweramp). Otherwise just rip with iTunes or any audio program.

    Music quality also depends on the bitrate of the file, as well as the sound card and earphones or speakers.
