I must be stupid. I've heard that I can use mpg123 and sox to make a wav-file from a mp3 file but I dont understand the man page so I don't know how. I like the wav file to be in good quality.

I recommend using amp, it's easier and you only have to use one program. You can get amp at sunsite:
ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/ALPHA/sound/amp-0.7.3.tgz

Untar it, run configure and make. You can create wave files with amp -w

(Edited by Computer101)! I was going to reject this answer. The question was about mpg123 and sox. Not about amp. Well I have to submit a new one.

mpg123 can produce raw PCM data, if you can create a header, you have a wave file. I've had an mp3 package that did that, it decoded the mp3 with l3dec and streamed it into a waveplayer. I don't recall its name, but if you know it, you could use the header util to create wave files.
