In the wake of Apple, which announced that lossless and Hi-Res music will be available on Apple Music at no additional cost, Amazon has also pulled up: the company, the first to offer music streaming in Hi-Res, has just announced that, starting today of the day, the entire catalog of music in high definition and in CD quality is open to all users with a Music Unlimited subscription, not just Music HD.
This decision has currently affected listeners from the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The catalog of lossless music has more than 70 million tracks, of which more than 7 million are in “Ultra HD” equivalent to 24 bit/192 kHz.
In the US, a subscription to Amazon Music Unlimited costs the same as Apple Music – $ 10. However, for Prime users, the subscription costs $8. Previously, Amazon Music HD had to pay $15 or $13, respectively.
