Nope only Qobuz and Tidal work with UAPP right now sorry.
And it has not started because Amazon has only released the API to hardware partners. The API is not public, and it is not yet available to app developers.

Yes and I also think the chances of Amazon allowing integration into Roon and Audirvana are slim to none. They want a closed system. They could possibly put one or both Qobuz and Tidal in serious trouble of going under if they did open their API so putting them out of business does not seem to be a priority for Amazon, just selling hardware from their partners.

I’m looking for a good DAP with proper support for Amazon Music HD.

Important considerations:
  • plays at the same quality as the source files - up to 192/24
  • balanced output
  • good sound quality
I’m considering the following:
  • Hiby R6 Pro
  • FiiO M11 Pro
  • iBasso DX220
Any comments on these devices, or other recommendations, welcome.

IMHO Amazon HD may be too new to expect a DAP to work 100% perfectly with.

I advise a waiting period before getting married to Amazon Music.

Use something more reliable until then?

From what I'm reading it does look too new to expect anything to work perfectly. I have a ZX300 and some Pono players with lots of FLAC files, so I can playback hi-res without a problem. My hope with Amazon Music HD was to get a wide selection of hi-res via streaming.

Cancelling subscription after trial with "No exclusive mode" reason, could be a good message to the deaf Amazon ears, they only understand money.
What is the annual sub for Qobuz right now?

Doubtful. I'm not even sure that subscribers who care about exclusive mode even amount to the proverbial rounding error for Amazon. (And FWIW, when I canceled my free trial last week I cited exclusive mode as the primary reason, plus the awful UI.)

I suggest to get an ipod touch or a small iphone + a mobile dac of your choice, this works fine for me. I don't believe in those DAPs, hiby r6 pro measured like junk on audio science reviews... I semi-permanently attached a dac to the phone with a velcro tape, so there is not much of a difference to a 'real' dap, but it's modular an I can exchange components to my liking...

Here is my current Amazon Music machine, even with a Fiio amp. Everything holding together with velcro tape, still mobile enough to put it into a pocket when moving around the house...
