It's basically better than CD quality! I have this and it's fantastic. Most of the tracks are in HD (i.e. CD quality) but a couple of million (apparently) are in Ultra HD which is even better than CD quality.

What HiFi describe it better in their 5 star review.

Amazon refers to HD tracks as having a ”bit depth of 16-bits, a minimum sample rate of 44.1 kHz (also referred to as CD-quality), and an average bitrate of 850 kbps”. UHD tracks, on the other hand, “have a bit depth of 24-bits, sample rates ranging from 44.1 kHz up to 192 kHz, and an average bitrate of 3730 kbps.”

thanks for posting heat added

i'm a previous subscriber to amazon music and i get the 3 months free so i believe its account specific its been well over a year since i last subscribed so assume its on that rather than just previous customers are excluded.

edit i am a prime member perhaps thats another reason.

Bit cheeky trying to force you to sign up to Amazon music unlimited rather than just the £5 more than Prime
Thanks this is music to my ears
Thanks for posting, I was looking to try out the 3D audio. BTW for anyone who wonders, you can cancel immediately - no need to wait until the end of the trial.

I think (though I may be incorrect) that the UHD music can only be played through an external DAC. Annoying, when I tested it last month DACs weren't supported on Android, only iOS. Though without a DAC you'll perhaps get the benefit of a track downsampled from a higher original quality.

Ah, so you can play UHD on Android, just not with an external DAC at the moment. Thanks for the correction. That's what it was that stopped me from using it. I wanted to use my Audioquest Dragonfly and couldn't.

Apparently although I'm by no means an expert. You can get a free trial of Poweramp I think. Might be worth a try?

I do have Poweramp but wasn't aware it linked directly into Amazon Music. I'll reinstall and take a look, thanks. Poweramp is a bit finicky with external DACs in my experience. USB Audio Player Pro is much better and links directly into Tidal and makes finding master quality on Tidal much easier. It's more expensive than Poweramp though.

Thanks for the XDA link.

You're welcome. Tidal HiFi is great but looks very expensive now Amazon have entered the fray. You can get a 6 person Family Membership with Amazon for the same price as Tidal's individual plan. And they were struggling before Amazon came onto the scene anyway.

Of course, with Amazon there is always cross-selling and they obviously want you to buy their Echo Studio HiRes speaker that compliments Amazon Music HD

Yeah I totally agree. I just wish the Android app would support external DACs. I'm sure it'll come.

When Spotify reach a 923 billion dollars market cap don't forget to let us know. Joking aside, what I'm getting at is music streaming for Amazon probably represents less than 1% of their business whereas it is all Spotify do.

But never underestimate Amazon's ability to take over markets, you just have to look at the smart speaker market. I remember when I first went on the net in 1999 and Amazon were basically a bookseller and lots of so called experts were predicting they would never be profitable

I hope so. I cancelled after my trial ended for this reason, the options for listening in proper bit-perfect HD from Amazon are severely limited, even with Windows it required me to set the bit rate to match the song, or it would resample. I left Amazon feedback as to why I'd cancelled, so I genuinely hope they improve.
I was hoping the dev's of Usb Audio Player Pro would be able to implement Amazon HD, but it seems it's a non-starter. Not sure why, probably the challenges of working with Amazon?
Worked for me despite a previous trial
How many wind ups of the gramophone will this cover?

Unfortunately not - "Current Amazon Music Unlimited subscription fee applies throughout trial". Such a shame.
Won’t this make jot all difference if your using a Bluetooth headset? Due to the limited data transfer of the connection?
Can you DL music to play offline?
I really used to like the Amazon music app. It was seamless wether you listened with a connection or without. Now it's just irritating, when using it in offline mode. That goes for using it with apple or android, its been like this for the last 6 months, possible longer.
Anyway around if you existing amazon customer who has done a previous trial

I’ve had a previous trial and it worked for me. Possibly just depends on how long ago you last had one.

I tend to agree although the flip side of this argument would be look at Spotify, music streaming is all they do and still Amazon have beaten them to HiRes music streaming. For the people with the correct equipment I think they would put up with the 'lesser' Amazon experience for the far better sound quality. Of course there aren't that many people who actually have the equipment to fully appreciate what Amazon Music HD are doing at the moment but tech improves all the time.
Very low quality unfortunately
Thanks OP! Cannot really go wrong with a free 90 trial
My free 3 months of deezer is done in a couple of weeks so this slots in nicely, thanks very much op... more free music
only a matter of time before SpotifyHD launches I guess
The music quality is great but the app is awful! Especially when it comes to downloads it always seems to hang forcing you to pause and start again which seems to get it going. Not hard work just annoying like a few other things in the app. Also if you are on a low data allowance be careful as it chews through data, I found the app so annoying I cancelled with a month left and am now trying YouTube music which I prefer.
I honestly can't tell the difference between HD and standard. I either listen on my work headset or our play one, occasionally the 5

Don't think so - I got 3 months HD at no additional cost, then price increases by £5 a month thereafter.
