How to convert ogg files?

I have an album in the ogg file format but I don't know how to get it into iTunes. I would like either apple lossless or high bitrate mp3. I googled. Brain hurts. Any advice is welcome.

and Adapter by Macroplant should work too.

Funny, I literally just downloaded a file from the Mac App store that converts FLAC to MP3 about 10 minutes ago. It claims it can do OGG too, but I don't have any OGG files to verify that. Anyway, it's called FLAC MP3 Converter. It was free too! Only issue I had was that it can create up to 320kb MP3s, but defaults to 192. You have to select the file(s) to convert first, THEN change the setting to 320, then convert. It was pretty fast too. Took about 12 seconds to convert a 52MB flac to MP3.

XLD is the tool you need.

I've always used Max for that.

Adapter looks interesting.

Max was last updated eight years ago and can be quite flaky. XLD is updated regularly and is the gold standard for audio file format conversion on the Mac.

Ok, I rescind my endorsement of the FLAC to MP3 program. I tried to do a batch convert, and no matter how I tried, it would NOT create 320kb MP3s. I downloaded the Adapter program above (also free), and it worked perfectly.
