MP2 (MPEG audio Layer 2) -> AC3?

At which AC3 bitrate? If it is not lower than the MP2 bitrate, this  
conversation is worthless.

Why lame when you convert to AC3?

Is recode integrated into transcode/ffmpeg? If not, maybe it worth to  
give it a try, it's a requantizer and doesn't need to decode and then  


I spilled spot remover on my dog and now he's gone.
