The AAC format does not compress MP3s
Authored by: jbouklas on Jul 02, '05 12:09:03AM

Wow. There's nothing worse than, with utter confidence, giving somebody false information. As the gentleman who responded first said, AAC is not a wrapper for MP3, nor does it inherently embed DRM. It uses MPEG-4 algorithyms and gives better compression with comparable bit rates to MP3. Some people say it sounds less rich than MP3, but this is a topic open for debate. Anyway, if you're unsure of something, look it up.

And sometimes if you're sure of something, look it up.

Rule of thumb: the more sure you are of something, the more you need that sanity check.

(Hang on, let me just see if I've got that right...)
