AAC (Advanced Audio Coding)

If you are a Macintosh user and ever do anything with audio, you have probably heard of AAC. Let’s take a moment to discuss this popular audio format. AAC stands for Advanced Audio
Coding. It is a standardized, lossy, compression scheme for digital audio and was designed to be the successor to the MP3 format. AAC generally delivers better sound quality at similar bitrates. AAC is part of the MPEG-4 standard. MP4-A files are not DRM protected, but MP4-P files are. AAC is the standard audio format for the iPhone, the iPod, and the iPad. (primary source-Wikipedia).
