There's no need to manually create .wav files. Temporary conversion to .wav happens as part of the encoding process. It's an internal process you don't see so it's not obvious it occurs, but it does.

The presets in MusicBee are set around the general guidelines for transparency so if you pick the High Quality setting you should be good. If you prefer to save space on your portable player the Portable Device setting will produce files that will do that and more often than not won't have an objectionable amount of audible artifacts.

Before you set off on a mass conversion project you can determine which quality setting is best for you by doing an apples to apples comparison using ABX testing. There's directions on how to do that here You may find the default settings are either too high or too low for your needs and decide to change them. MusicBee makes that simple in the Format Converter dialog.
