    Yes, you will get quality loss, but is not audible with the right settings.

    Incorrect. Lossless to lossless conversion results in another lossless file.

    Then I confused Apple Lossless with AAC as it seems. Thanks for the correction.

    If you can run Windows in bootcamp or a virtual machine there's a program called dBpoweramp that will convert virtually any format to virtually any other format. It's also multithreaded.
