CD Digital Audio File
A standardized format intended for compact discs. It features an amplitude resolution of 16 bits and a sampling frequency of 44100 Hz. This format emerged back in 1980. It is utilized for storing data on personal computers and CDs. A CS Digital Audio File stores the audio data in the AIFF format. You can see such files if you extract the audio files from a compact disc. This operation can be performed using Apple iTunes.
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.
