What is AU?
The Au file format is a simple audio file format introduced by Sun Microsystems.
The format was common on NeXT systems and on early web pages. Originally it was
headerless, being simply 8-bit 0
8-law-encoded data at an 8000 Hz sample
rate. Hardware from other vendors often used sample rates as high as 8192 Hz,
often integer factors of video clock signals. Newer files have a header that consists
of six 32-bit words, an optional information chunk and then the data (in big endian
format). Although the format now supports many audio encoding formats, it remains
associated with the 0
8-law logarithmic encoding. This encoding was
native to the SPARCstation 1 hardware, where SunOS exposed the encoding to apps
through the /dev/audio interface. This encoding and interface became a de facto
standard for Unix sound.
What is MP3?
MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3, more commonly referred to as MP3, is a digital audio encoding
format using a form of lossy data compression. It is a common audio format for
consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard encoding for the transfer
and playback of music on digital audio players. MP3's use of a lossy compression
algorithm is designed to greatly reduce the amount of data required to represent
the audio recording and still sound like a faithful reproduction of the original
uncompressed audio for most listeners, but is not considered high fidelity audio
by audiophiles. An MP3 file that is created using the mid-range bit rate setting
of 128 kbit/s will result in a file that is typically about 1/10th the size of
the CD file created from the original audio source. An MP3 file can also be constructed
at higher or lower bit rates, with higher or lower resulting quality. The compression
works by reducing accuracy of certain parts of sound that are deemed beyond the
auditory resolution ability of most people. This method is commonly referred to
as perceptual coding. It internally provides a representation of sound within
a short term time/frequency analysis window, by using psychoacoustic models to
discard or reduce precision of components less audible to human hearing, and recording
the remaining information in an efficient manner. This is relatively similar to
the principles used by JPEG, an image compression format.
