You are very vague, we can't see HOW much loss in quality you are

You are using a lossy codec, so you will _always_ have some quality
degredation - there is by definition no way you can achieve the
identical quality as the original. You can only ever achieve _nearly_ the same quality, albeit
possibly very close to the original.

As Paul wrote, we need to see the command line and complete, uncut
console output.
