How to Convert Spotify to AAC format on PC

AAC vs MP3

AAC and MP3 are both lossy audio compression formats. AAC is the default format used by iTunes. It produces better audio quality than MP3 for a given data rate (e.g., 128 kbps) and is playable in almost all software that can play MP3 files.

AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) and MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3) are lossy formats for audio files. MP3, an audio-specific format, is now the de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players. Designed to be the successor of the MP3 format, AAC generally achieves better sound quality than MP3 at similar bit rates. This difference in quality is more obvious at lower bitrates.

AAC is less widely supported than MP3, partly because it's relatively newer and Windows Media has risen constantly. However, AAC does have higher quality sound and smaller size than MP3 at the same or similar high bitrate.

If your audio player supports both the two audio formats, AAC format will be a better choice.
