In re converting, it won't be very good, particularly at the low data 
rates you are discussing.  The reason is that each method throws away 
different parts of the data, and when you encode it first with one 
method, then convert to the other, you wind up with artifacts of both 
methods, and the result isn't anywhere near as listenable as either by
