    not at this time. If you could find a command-line decoder for the format, then
    it may be posssible to add it in.

    ...and let me suggest that you won't find one. If you google
    around, you'll see that "convert .aa to .mp3" will send you in
    100 not-particularly-fruitful directions.

    There exist a few solutions for converting your Audible files to
    something more portable (mp3, for example). In addition to
    simply using your soundcard to (re)record the files (i.e., play
    and record at the same time), there are a few software tools
    that will convert for you. Many of them, though, have
    "disappeared" on-line.

    In my experience, the one that works best is Goldwave
    (goldwave.com). Presuming you actually "own" the files (you
    have your audible.com name and password), you can open the
    files in Goldwave and then save them in a wide variety of
    formats. Works like a charm.

    Thank you for your responses. What I ended up doing was using DBpoweramp (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm), installing the direct show codec (http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-directshow.htm), and used this guide (http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthre...339#post37339_)
    to change the config file....

    works great! (also..I converted it to Ogg just for spite )
