XLD (http://tmkk.undo.jp/xld/index_e.html) is my favorite tool for converting audio files. It’ll take pretty much anything you can throw at it and spit it back out in pretty much any other common format. It’s incredibly stable and blazingly fast, even when simultaneously processing dozens of conversions.
I often drop entire albums into XLD, starting out as FLAC (the rest of the world’s preference) and ending up as ALAC (iTunes’ and my preference), and it has never crashed on me nor spit out any corrupted or degraded files.
Do people ever send you .wma files, resulting in your silently cursing them and wishing temporary but intense pain to befall them, like a nasty toe stub or an aggressively bitten tongue? XLD will eliminate that needless mental stress by effortlessly converting those crappy .wma files into anything you’d like. Do you want extreme control over the resulting file type? You’ve got it. The advanced conversion options are deep and powerful.
It’s constantly under development and I can’t recommend it enough.

I’ve thought about this for a few days and I don’t think there is anything “normal” I wouldn’t eat for $2000.
It would help to know what you consider “normal.” Seafood and mushrooms are pretty much the only common foods that I absolutely do not ever eat, but I’d probably make an exception for $2k.
