See also Understanding AAC.



AACPlus (a.k.a. AAC+) is LC-AAC + SBR (Spectral Band Replication) and aacPlus v2 means LC-AAC + SBR (Spectral Band Replication) + PS (Parametric Stereo). Standard LC-AAC decoders can decode aacPlus encoded files/streams but without SBR and PS you do not get the full quality.
