Not really. Both uncompress to what is commonly known as AIFF, which is 2 channel PCM audio encoded in a file. AIFF stands for Apple Interchange File Format and was pioneered by Apple in the late 80s and quickly made the standard in music mastering then...and now. Microsoft and IBM came out with WAV a couple of years later, which was basically the same thing.
