MP3, a time-honored format, remains to present a picture of prosperity. It is truly our friend anywhere and anytime. Our AU to MP3 Converter can convert AU files to MP3 with high quality.
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 µ-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 unsigned 32-bit words, an optional information chunk and then the data (in big endian format).
MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer 3 (or III), more commonly referred to as MP3 , is a patented 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 of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players.
