A standard AIFF file contains 2 channels of uncompressed stereo audio with a sample size of 16 bits, recorded at a sampling rate of 44.1 kilohertz. This is also known as "CD-quality audio," since CDs use the same audio specifications.
AIFF vs MP3 vs WAV
AIFF is unlike the common MP3 audio format, which is uncompressed. That is to say that while AIFF retains a higher quality sound than MP3, and also takes up significantly more disk space—generally 10 MB for every minute of audio. For a song with 4 minutes saved as an AIFF, this will require just over 40MB of disk space. This is nearly identical to a .WAV file (which uses the same sample size and sampling rate as an AIFF file. However, it is about ten times the size of a similar MP3 file recorded at 128 kbps, or five times the size of an MP3 file recorded at 256 kbps.
