MP3 reconversion

I have some MP3’s of really old music that were created as 112 or 128 kbps.
I have searched for higher quality files, but find none.
Is there anything, qualitatively, to be gained by:
Converting to WAV files, then
Converting to VBR MP3s via LAME at, say 32/320?

No…You can’t get back what’s already lost…Live with it, or start from original source…

Thanks. I figured that would be the case but thought I’d check anyway.

No harm in asking…:cool:
