    PCM is the equivalent of standard 'redbook' CD, so is uncompressed with higher bitrates (1.4MB/s I believe), so should be higher quality than the 'lossy' compressed formats, all things otherwise being equal...

    As KJ sya it's a much higher bitrate than MP3, AAC, Dolby Digital, DTS et al. Many music DVDs have a Linear PCM track on them as well as the surround sound tracks. They generally are 5-6 times greater in size
