Box box to Converter

I listen to Direct-TV Sonic Tap music channels.
BUT! They broadcast all in MP3 Format.
Is there a Converter Box: MP3 in to a WAV file out to go between Direct-TV receiver And Audio Pre-Amp?

To much compression for my taste.

I understand that MP3 removes what all but very-very
young ears Hrz can detect+. But MP3 also compresses the music content to greatly reduce the song file bits sizes.

Part of MP3 is a compressed file., And if not been removed
Then I want to decode it. Like you and everyone does with
there DAC. Up-sampling. That is if you play digital music..

Thanks!!! to Zd542 and Bombaywalla!

I didn't know that during the MP3 process that
certain Hrz Fq were removed permanently.

As far as Sonic Tap caring. Well! They are planning offering
a "Pay Subscribe HiRez Streaming." Via Direct TV.
That would them solves my needs. For casual listening.
Tubes444 & out..
Your right!

I have Music Hall 25.3 DAC I bought a Yr ago.
There's kind of Cult following on some of there line.
I knew this when I bought it. Because a TUBE 6922/Hybrid.

Serious up-grades: Burson OP-AMPS/Coupling caps(SOLEN)
Up-Graded-Transistors/ Power-supply Reg/Up-G Clock/
Replaced all(4) OEM fuses with AUDIO MAGIC TOP FUSES.
Everything in the signal path out> up-graded.
Replaced the 6922 Harmonix with NOS E88CC Holland French Mazda. Herbies Tube rings/Furtech Recep/Cardas P/C/AQ Vodka
Opt-link from Direct-TV box Dac out Nordost-H2 RCAs to Pre-amp.
