No

a file which plays fine with a .m4a extension yields this when it has a different extension:

play FAIL formats: no handler for file extension `aac'
play FAIL formats: no handler for detected file type `audio/x-hx-aac-adts; charset=binary'

sox should know that aac is the same thing as m4a.

    The ffmpeg format handler has been deprecated and will be removed from the next release. Use
    ffmpeg -i file -f sox - | sox - ...
    (or avconv) to process file types not directly supported by SoX.
