WHAT IS AACPLUS also HE-AAC? (Wikipedia)
aacPlus is a new audio format that allows for stereo, near CD-quality streaming audio at only 32 kbps. This means that high quality Internet radio has finally become affordable. Offers vastly superior fidelity over MP3, Windows Media, Real Audio and Ogg Vorbis at equivalent low bitrates.
From Coding Technologies' website:
MPEG-4 aacPlus is the combination of three MPEG technologies comprising Advanced Audio Coding (AAC), coupled with Coding Technologies' Spectral Band Replication (SBR), and Parametric Stereo (PS) technologies. SBR is a unique bandwidth extension technique which enables audio codecs to deliver the same quality at half the bit rate. PS significantly increases the codec efficiency a second time for low bit rate stereo signals.
SBR and PS are both forward and backward compatible methods to enhance the efficiency of any audio codec. As a result, aacPlus delivers streaming and downloadable 5.1 multichannel audio at 128 kbps, near CD-quality stereo at 32 kbps, excellent quality stereo at 24 kbps, and good quality for mixed content even below 16 kbps mono. This level of efficiency fundamentally enables new applications in the markets of mobile and digital broadcast.
WHAT DO I NEED TO LISTEN TO AACPLUS STREAMS?
You'll need the latest version of Winamp on Windows or VLC Player on Mac and other *nixes. iTunes does not currently support the aacPlus format (aac and aacPlus are similar but different beasts). Hopefully Apple will eventually support aacPlus in the next major revision of Quicktime. With windows media player you need to install the Orban Optic codec from
