APE (Monkey’s Audio) is a lossless audio file format released in 2000 by Matthew T. Ashland. Because it’s a lossless sound format, it doesn’t lose data during compression, unlike other standard formats like AAC, MP3, and Vorbis. However, Monkey’s Audio is available on PC only. To play APE on Mac OS X and Linux, you’ll need a third-party plugin like JRiver Media Center.
AA (Audible Audio) is an audio container format with a .aa filename extension and is used to store audiobooks. It can contain audiobook features such as spoken-word audio, bookmarks, chapter markers, and more. This format is supported by portable devices like Apple iPod, Amazon Kindle, ScanDisk Sansa, Creative Zen, and more.
