Nero AAC Encoder Latest version 188.8.131.52.8
Nero AAC is currently the best lossy compression format around. Although proprietary, it gives higher quality than its open counterpart, the FAAC. Compared to MP3, it is outright superior, plus it handles multichannel audio. When run with the highest quality settings, the difference between the source and resulting file is sometimes inaudible. AAC is generally supported by most hardware players.
If you have a jumbo audio collection and disk space is an issue, MPEG-4 AAC audio files are the way to go.
