Amazon Music has today announced the immediate availability of CD-quality streaming from its 50 million-strong song library via a new ‘HD’ subscription tier: US$14.99/month, discounted by US$2/month for Amazon Prime subscribers.
A small percentage of this same lossless library will be made available as natively streamed hi-res audio – 24bits and sample rates up to 192kHz – and without the help of MQA. Amazon is calling this content ‘Ultra HD’.
Amazon Music’s HD service launches today in the US, the UK, Germany and, perhaps most interestingly, Japan where streaming is in its infancy. A 90-day free trial is available.
