Audio compression reduces the bandwidth requirement of digital audio streams and the data size of audio files. The data compression technologies include the likes of MP2 Systems, MP3 Systems, PAC, VQF, Windows WMA Systems, TAC Systems and sound cards. Lossy and lossless algorithms have been specifically optimized that provide greater compression rates and find application in mainstream consumer audio devices.
These algorithms reduce information redundancy using methods like coding, pattern recognition and linear prediction. TAC is an audio compression technology that gives true HIFI audio compression together with lossless audio compression like LPAC.
The best TAC programs include EAC 081b Rippers and the preferred encoder for TAC is K+K TAC Encoder MP02. ABM system is used in TAC and it is one of the best systems designed to achieve the best audio quality. It gives best results if the desired quality is set to the highest.
Audio compression technologies are of different types where MP2 systems are used in the pro-audio field for film, radio and DVD, MP3 is used for consumer audio storage, and VQF and PAC are used for encoding.
