AAC means advanced Audio Coding, also called MPEG-4 AAC. This audio codec is the continuation of the MP3 codec created by Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. It is an audio codec used increasingly for downloaded music files, streaming-media, and satellite-radio applications.
MP3 is a popular digital audio encoding and lossy compression format. It was designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent audio. Because MP3s significantly compress songs, it is a perfect candidate for distributing on the internet.
The differences between the AAC and MP3 codecs: AAC-encoded files sound as good as or better than MP3 files encoded at the same or even a higher bit rate. For example, a 128-kilobit-per-second (kbit/s) AAC file should sound as good as or better than a 160 kbit/s MP3 file. Because the bit rate is lower, the AAC file will also be smaller than the MP3 file. AAC files allow you to store the most music on your hard disk or iPod.
