    AM/FM USB Tuner

    I know what I want - an AM/FM Tuner that gets good reception and plugs into my computer via USB, on which I can schedule the recording of various stations. Anybody know if such a device exists?

    Audio Interchange File Format (or AIFF) is a file format for storing digital audio (waveform) data. It supports a variety of bit resolutions, sample rates, and channels of audio. This format is very popular upon Apple platforms, and is widely used in professional programs that process digital audio waveforms. For more info, look here.

    AAC stands for Advanced Audio Coding which is a general purpose lossy audio compression format developed by Fraunhofer, Dolby, Sony and AT&T as major contributors. It is the natural successor of MPEG Layer III / MP3 in the new multimedia standard MPEG-4 that uses MP4 as the container format for all kinds of content. For more info, look here.

    In short, they're both common audio formats.
