you can do it without losing quality but you will lose colour if the cmyk colour is out of the range of rgb.

which basically means, rgb has fairly bright colour which it produces through a monitor using luminosity. it is much brighter than the equivelant cmyk value in real life so cymk cant match it. the only other way is to use spot colours but depending on what you need that may not be the solution.

not much you can do really. rgb will always have brighter colours than cmyk... photoshop has on option you can turn on to show you which colours are out of the cmyk area. > view > gamut warning
