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 u-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 u-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 ALAC?
Apple Lossless (also known as Apple Lossless Encoder, ALE,
or Apple Lossless Audio Codec, ALAC) is an audio codec developed by Apple
Inc. for lossless data compression of digital music.
Apple Lossless data is stored within an MP4 container with the filename extension
.m4a. It is not a variant of AAC, but uses linear prediction similar to other
lossless codecs such as FLAC and Shorten. iPod players with a dock connector (not
the Shuffle) and recent firmware can play Apple Lossless-encoded files. It does
not utilize any digital rights management (DRM) scheme, but by the nature of the
container, it is thought that DRM can be applied to ALAC much the same way it
can with other files in QuickTime containers.
