Have you tried FormatFactory?

if the original file is already too optimized, no software would be able to "convert" it to file with "better" quality...
conversion from one compressed file to another will only make the sound quality lower.

Lossy to lossy = bad quality. If your player can handle m4a, don't bother converting.
.m4a is usually AAC, which is better than mp3 anyway.

is it possible to tag and add album art to m4a? 


i usually use mp3 (or convert) just because of the ID3 tags and the tools readily available for tagging.

Yes... there are several taggers out there with m4a support (this is the one I use http://www.mp3tag.de/en/)

Sorry for this late reply. But doesn't iTunes convert m4A to mp3?
