What is M4A??
The M4A file type is primarily associated with 'MPEG-4 Audio Layer'. Files in .M4A format are actually the audio layer of (non-video) MPEG 4 movies. M4A is slated to become the new standard for audio file compression. This format is also known as Apple Lossless, Apple Lossless Encoder, or ALE. It is a new codec designed to provide lossless encoding in less storage space.
What is MP3 ?
MP3 is a patented digital audio encoding format using a form of loss data compression. It is a common audio format for consumer audio storage, as well as a de facto standard of digital audio compression for the transfer and playback of music on digital audio players support OptimFROG, Speex at the same time,
Best M4A to MP3 converter
ALAC and wav are both lossless formats. There really isn't any difference in terms of quality, assuming you rip the WAV at the native CD quality. The only real difference between WAV and Apple Lossless is that lossless uses non-lossy compression (as opposed to lossy compression... as a basic example, a ZIP file is a non-lossy compression -- the file comes out exactly like it went in; an MP3 is a lossy compression), so the ALAC file is smaller. Otherwise, as long as your hardware can play the file, it doesn't really matter. And you can convert between lossless formats without loss of quality.
Personally, I¡¯d like to use wav. If in need, I will convert ALAC to wav.
