Yes! I've done it! There is a GOOD way to decode WMA on a mac!

Tools you need:
1. Audion

2. You may need a registered version of Audion...not sure about this one. 
Mine is registered and I'm not sure what the trial version is capable of.

What to do:
1. Set up Decoders in Audion. To do this in select "Console" in the "Tools" 
menu. Make sure the WMA decoder is on in the decoders tab.

2. Set up Decoders in Audion. To to this hit the "Encoders" tab in the 
console. Here you can set up what you want to convert the WMA into.

3. Select "New Playlist" from the file menu.

4. Drag your WMA files onto this playlist.

5. Select "Encode All Playlist Items" in the "Tools" menu.

6. Wait for a few minutes and you have decoded your WMA files!
