Converting from one format to another one almost always means decoding and
then encoding to another one. So you need the decoder in any case.

So with "mpg321" you can decode it to "wav", and then encode it with the
tool "flac" is a good idea.

Don't use another lossy format like Vorbis - you would lose too much.
