Lossless Audio (LA) is a lossless audio compressor developed by Michael Bevin

Pros

  • Compresses files better than almost any other current lossless encoder
  • Available for Windows (win32) and Linux/x86 (binaries only).
  • XMMS + Winamp plugin available

Cons

  • Very slow encode and decode (realtime on 700–800 MHz CPU)
  • No source code or format specification available.

It's worth mentioning that the LA foobar2000 plugin doesn't produce bit-identical streams, and the author has shown no interest in fixing this issue
