How do I find out the audio format of a wav file?

In Windows XP, I used to use sndrec32.exe (Sound Recorder accessory) to open a wav file and the get properties on the file. This would display the length, data size, and audio format (e.g. GSM 6.10 8.000 kHz, Mono). There was also the option to convert the file to another format.

"I've long used a small utility, the GSpot Codec Information Appliance. Don't ask me about the name. I didn't choose it. ;)

Anyway, you can drag most any type of media file, audio or video, into the app, or use the File|Open menu (it also supports batch processing) and it will tell you all kinds of information about the file."
