program to detect bit rate and sample rate of an audio file

I am creating a way for users to upload their audio voice message using php and I could not find a php function that can give more information about an audio file.
Users are required to upload a .WAV file of 16 Bit 8kHz mono.
Therefore, after the file is uploaded I have to make sure it is in this correct format.

I am wondering if there is a stable linux audio program that I can run via command line and have it output the details of an audio file.
Then I could parse the output and extract the type of information I need to determine if the audio file is in the proper format.
It will be on a production server, so the program has to be well known for stability.

Any suggestions?

A modified version of this would let you do it right in PHP:

If that doesn't work there is a PHP sourceforge project to do it as well called getID3:

That might be more stable but not as simplistic.
