the easiest way and more accurate than any rectifier/filter approach can 
do, and besides rect/filt will give nice mean value, not RMS.
about 5-7EUR in singles

To properly convert RMS you need to square the signal, integrate and 
then do square root. So at least 2 multipliers and some clever circuit. 
Not worth the effort and much more expensive IMHO.
