I would look into archivers/bunzip and archivers/p7zip. I recall
reading that the 7z format produces better compression rates than RAR
for already compressed audio files but I don't remember the source. The
file formats you mentioned are already compressed and depending on the
contents you probably won't get /much/ better than you have now.
