Confused by WAV, PCM, AAC, WMA, MP3, and other unfathomable TLAs (three letter acronyms)? Ever wondered how audio works in a Windows or Mac PC? This tutorial will cover the past, present, and future of PC audio, including what innards of the PC make audio happen, how the audio industry has contributed to personal computer audio, the mechanisms by which audio streams through a PC, an explanation of various audio formats on the PC, and finally a look at the future of PC audio. No prior knowledge is assumed but detailed questions will be entertained.
