- more features
- is likely to be faster, since it uses libsndfile which is coded in C
- handles more file formats (libsndfile is by far the best library for
audio file IO and handles a lot of software-specific details).
- pure python and no need for 3rd party library
License-wise, audiolab is LGPL (because libsndfile is) whereas
scipy.io.wavfile is BSD as the rest of scipy.
