Amazon is planning to launch a new high-fidelity music streaming service with better-than-CD-quality audio, reports Music Business Worldwide. The new service is expected to cost around $15 a month, and it would sit alongside Amazon’s existing music services. These include Prime Music and Music Unlimited, which currently offer streams at a maximum of 256 Kbps, well below the 1,411 Kbps bitrate of CDs.

Impressive but due to politics, I really don't support Amazon so Tidal streaming gets my weight.

I started the 90 day free trial a couple of hours ago. With casual listening, sound is comparable to Tidal. Unfortunately, the Windows app is really a pain to navigate.

Sorted out my iOS problems and currently got my iPad Pro connected to my Sony WM1A. My Walkman is showing every tracks as 192 so I think the app upsamples everything. For example when I use my Walkman with NYA my Walkman shows the correct quality for each track

Is there a way to change it to show albums in chronological order rather than popular albums?
