Amazon Music offers lossless music streaming for $12.99 per month

Amazon is launching a new tier for its Amazon Music subscription service that will offer high quality, lossless audio streams, and downloads, the company says. It will offer more than 50 million songs in High definition and millions of songs in Ultra High definition.

Called Amazon Music HD, Amazon says that people are going to have access to over 50 million high-resolution tracks at CD quality and better. Thanks for the support for 16-but files and sample rates of 44.1kHz and above.

The service will cost $12.99 per month for Prime members and $14.99 per month for everyone else. Current Aamzon Music subscribers will be able to access the service by paying only an additional $5 per month.

Amazon Music HD app is available for iOS, Android the web and Amazon’s Fire and Echo devices. Music HD is rolling out starting today in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan.

Steve Boom, VP of Amazon Music, told that the company wanted to launch Music HD because even though streaming services give people access to millions of songs on demand. They’re not listening to these tunes as it was intended.

He added, We’re not hearing music the way artist records it in the studio. It means you’re missing out on highs of music, lows of music, the details in the music.

Steve Boom added, that Amazon has spent a lot of time talking to consumers and artists, who both agree they want a better, higher-quality listening experience.
