Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In the setup of grip, you must set up the source as mp3, and the target as ogg.
However, both mp3 and ogg are technically known as 'lossy formats'. They both filter out portions of the audio spectrum that we are USUALLY not able to hear. But, they don't necessarily filter out the same portions of that spectrum. There is that matter or hormonic frequencies to consider. We may not hear the natural frequencies, but the harmonics is another matter.
Mp3 filters some portion of the audio spectrum; ogg some other portion. Perhaps the same; perhaps different.
So, if you convert mp3 to ogg (easily done when grip is properly configured), you may not get sound reproduction to your satisfaction.
Best bet is to go for the original file (for example a music cd) and convert to ogg from that.
All I suggest is this: try it. You may like it. You may not. If you don't; tough luck. You've been warned. Go back to the source of the mp3 (the wav or cdda file) and try to convert directly to ogg.
I have used mp32ogg script to convert high-bitrate mp3's into low-bitrate ogg for my portable player. But sorry, it is written for Linux ...
Me too, I recommend mp32ogg. That script can convert a whole directory tree recursively and it will also transfer the meta information (artist, album, track, song title, etc). It is easy to use and has other nice features. Details here: Convert your MP3 files to Ogg Vorbis with mp32ogg
