apple's itunes
(AAC converted under 128 Kbps with Sound enhancement feature)

and other 3rd party softwares

iTunes creates .MP4/.M4A files, not .AAC files...

Winamp supports files with the .aac extension.
These are mpeg2-lc aac files.

MP4/M4A is a container format for mpeg4-he aac files (though the container can also contain mpeg2-lc aac files, or any other compatible format).

To play these in Winamp you will need to install the relevant plugin.

Native MP4/M4A support is planned for a forthcoming Winamp 5.0x release.
