AAC file sizes versus MP3

  Templar1961 10:00 03 Jun 2005

I recently downloaded Nokia PC Suite 6.5 to backup/synchronize contacts data with Outlook Express.

The Nokia PC suite includes a tool to rip music to AAC files to transfer to my Nokia 6230 mobile phone. I noticed that the AAC files were about half the size of MP3 files of the same music?

Is there a loss of quality with AAC?

I downloaded Winamp 5.092 to try it out but the AAC files it produced were the same size as MP3s produced with Windows Media Player?

To decrease the file size you have to sacrise something... It will most probably be quality
