A coding technique that is used to losslessly compress 1 bit audio data is introduced. The individual steps in the encoding and decoding process are detailed, and an example illustrating the complete algorithm is provided. The lossless compression performance of the algorithm is provided. The lossless compression performance of the algorithm and its dependence on various genres of music are discussed. To circumvent the classical problem of playing time uncertainty, intimately connected to any lossless coding technique, the concept of a playing time estimator is introduced, and feasibly of 1-bit compression is demonstrated.
