This is a reference to compare the audio quality and compression bitrates of the different wave compression codecs available for ".wav" files using the audio compression manager including PCM, GSM, ADPCM, CELP, SBC, TrueSpeech and MPEG Layer-3.

[edit] Audio Compression Manager

Note: The Audio Compression Manager (ACM) is used for recording to .wav (wave) files.

The audio file compression formats listed on this page are low bitrate speech formats. Higher bitrate music and broadcast voice formats are not listed.

You can listen to samples of each audio format by clicking on the "Sample" link.
