Do you not realize how absurd it is to think that you can go from something that is low quality, change its format, and all of a sudden make it sound better?
When you encode something with MP3, you are removing the data that is "less essential" to song, basically. So if that data is GONE, how would you ever get it back by changing the format...is it simply going to materialize?
I mean...you can think of this in terms of physics...or in terms of photography (going from a super low-rez picture to a high-rez one; it's absolutely crazy to think you could...it's like thinking that you can simply create new pixels (i.e. data) from nothing!) and I think that anyone who even postulates that it's possible to do this has a profound misunderstanding of the world.
