What is a ac3 file?

The Digital Audio Compression or Audio Codec 3 (AC3) extension is a compressed audio file format designed by Dolby Digital.  This audio compression file is intended for home and theater surround sound presentations as well as digital cable television broadcasting.  AC3 files support 5.1 surround sound systems and have a range of 13.1 audio channels.
