    Hi,
    my personal favorite is OPUS, if Iam not wrong it is free and good. Therefore it is used by Discord for example. If iam not wrong. Free implementation of AAC aren't usually good as not "free"
    Therefore I think OPUS is good solution.
    But not audiophile not audio expert.

    Even though Opus would be best and it's free, I don't think Apple supports Opus which is dumb. I personally know of a Rock/Indie Rock station online that uses HE-AAC (AAC +), which also works on devices that only support AAC-LC (AAC). Vorbis (OGG) would also be a fine option and have always liked Vorbis but you also run into support issues with it.
