stdout from mplayer/mencoder?

I am using mplayer and lame to convert RealAudio files to MP3.
Everything works, but I'd like to avoid large temporary WAV files.
Currently, I do something like:
mplayer -ao pcm -aofile $WAVFILE $RAFILE
lame $WAVFILE $MP3FILE
But what I'd like to do is more like:
mplayer -ao pcm -aofile /dev/stdout $RAFILE | lame - $MP3FILE
The problem is that the resulting MP3 file is just white noise. I'm not
sure what's going wrong. (I've tried specifying -r & -s lame flags.)
Is it possible to get mplayer to write to stdout?
Or for mplayer/lame to convert RA->MP3 in a single pipeline?
