Amazon Music HD..... Not For Audiophiles


Interesting article....

If you want a streaming service primarily for your smartphone or tablet, Amazon Music HD will work fine, because those are the platforms it was designed for.

What audio quality does Amazon Music HD support?

Amazon Music HD offers lossless audio in two quality ranges: HD and Ultra HD.

HD tracks are 16-bit audio, with a minimum sample rate of 44.1 kHz (16/44.1 is also referred to as CD-quality), and an average bitrate of 850 kbps. Ultra HD tracks have a bit depth of 24 bits, with sample rates ranging from 44.1 kHz up to 192 kHz, and an average bitrate of 3730 kbps.

In comparison, most standard streaming services currently offer Standard Definition (SD) with a bitrate up to 320 kbps. These audio files use lossy compression, where details of the original audio are removed in order to reduce the file size. By contrast, Amazon Music HD preserves the original recording information to deliver the highest quality sound available, more than 2x the bitrate in HD and more than 10x the bitrate at the highest Ultra HD bitrate. Amazon Music HD will always play the highest quality content available, based on network, device capability and your selected settings.


They all kinda suck.

@skypunk,

Are you having trouble sleeping knowing digital has caught up with deeply flawed analog 😂
@lalitk all your digital started as analog.

If you can not wrap your head around that you’re so far gone no one can bring you back.

I enjoy all music formats, digital and analog. I simply said that all kinda suck. And that is a fact, Tidal, Quizbuz what ever it’s called, Deezer, Ponus, Amazon they all have issues.

Hell tonight I listened to the new Nick Cave streamed on my Moon 280D then moved to SRV on CD playing on my Moon 260D Transport and now I am listening to Yes 50th live on my Thorens TD145.

Dude I sleep just fine and it’s only 9:00 pm here.

Please stop being a digital douche. 
@lalitk oh geez you’re a fuser too. Gross!
