AC3: a Dolby Digital audio file
This is an audio file extension that allows for achieving surround sound. It is utilized in files of the DVD format. Its manufacturing company is Dolby Digital. An AC3 file is an audio stream that can be encountered as external soundtracks for films. You can download it separately and synchronize it with the movie file. The audio file contains 6 channels: upper and lower, front and rear, right and left, as well as low-frequency effects.
AU format for reliable data storage
This audio format was developed by Sun Microsystems. It is intended for storing audio files; the file itself consists of three components: the header, the annotation unit, and the audio file itself. What distinguishes this format is the small file size, due to which its sound quality is low. It can be converted into other formats, such as mp3 or MPEG. Although this format is mostly used on personal computers that are powered by operating systems Sun or Unix, AU files can also be opened using other audio players.
