By adding support for AAC/HE-AAC to Icecast2, the project is certainly 
about freedom.
It gives users the freedom to choose whatever codec they want.

HE-AAC/aacPlus, because of its efficiencies and good sound quality at ultra 
low bit-rates, is rapidly becoming a very popular streaming audio codec 
solution.  Even though the codec is not free, and there are up-front costs 
involved, savings in bandwidth alone more than offset this cost.

Icecast2 is certainly a part of this, and we thank the Icecast2 developers 
for supporting AAC/HE-AAC/aacPlus.
