    altohugh you should be aware that every time you transcode from one format to another you are reducing the quality.

    Not sure if this is what you mean:

    Click 'Edit' in the Tool bar, and then hit 'Preferences'

    Click the 'Advanced' tab, and then the 'Import' tab.

    In the box that says 'Import Using' click on the drop down menu and select 'MP3 Encoder'.

    You can use the 'Setting' drop down menu to select your bitrate.

    This will now mean any CD's you rip will rip into MP3 at the selected bitrate, and you can use Itunes to transcode your unprotected AAC files to MP3 as well (although as mentioned above you will slightly lose quality)

    At the same bit rate AAC is better, in terms of sound quality. However, remember more players will recognise MP3.
