That's seems silly. Why convert it to wav first? Why not convert directly to
ffmpeg -i example.ogg to example.mp3
or whatever the command would be.
Anyway, it's double lossy whatever you do, and maybe even worse if you
go the roundabout wav route (though I don't really know, but you can't
fool mother nature).
Or maybe my understanding is shaky you'll illuminate me.
