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.
Core Audio Format
This audio file container was created by Apples developers. CAF incorporates a huge amount of information: the artists name, the songs duration, the names of the album and track. In terms of size, files of the CAFformat can exceed 4 GB. After its emergence in 2005, Core Audio Format replaced AIFF and WAV. It has a lower compression ratio, so the quality of audio does not suffer as a result of compression. CAF files are often used to create various sound effects.
