Stupid question regarding mp3 quality

Hey guys, I'm pretty sure this is really stupid but I just don't know anyway let's say we have mp3 in 320 kbps if I convert them to 128 kbps and later on I want them in CD quality and convert them back again to 320 or to WAV format do I get the best quality or once I have them on 128 they stay that way no matter what??

I'm pretty sure once they are 128 they stay that way. You'd have to re-rip them from a lossless source or something better than 320 if thats how you want them. For mp3s that I'm not burning on CDs, I usually rip 256 b/c 128 you can hear is less quality, but once you get up above 196 (or whatever the number is ), your ear can't really tell the difference. If you have a sweet audio system, then you might want something better, but for me just listening on headphones from my computer, 256 is fine and the files take up much less space.
