Tidal, Deezer, and Qobuz are no longer the only games in town for lossless streamed audio. Amazon Music HD has arrived for audiophiles seeking the “highest quality audio,” and it’s just $12.99 per month for Prime members (a comparative bargain compared to what the competitors charge).
More than 50 million lossless HD songs are currently available in 16-bit/44.1 kHz, as well as a selection of Ultra HD tracks in 24-bit/192 kHz. Users have the option of downloading these tracks for offline listening.
“From rock to hip-hop to classical and pop, we believe listening to music at this level of sound will make customers fall in love again with their favorite music and artists. As we usher in a new listening experience for our customers, we’re combining the convenience of streaming with all of the emotion, power, clarity and nuance of the original recordings.”
