    Amazon have just launched Amazon Unlimited with Hi Res playback. Would be really tempting if someone could make a plugin or app that works as well as the Tidal one on MySqueezebox.com - Amazon being such a big player will probably kill off the likes of Tidal and Quobuz as they won't be able to compete.

    Nothing happened during the last 3 years...
    ...so we all better dream on.

    Guess what. That Amazon message got me also triggered to look up what's going
    on in the (RPI) bluetooth arena.
    Because bluetooth or (sh)airplay might still be a viable option.

    For now I concentrate on BT.
    The are some good news. There's now Sony LDAC support inside
    the Linux bluetoothstack. Properly implemented that'd allow for 24/96. Lossless/HD Audio seems possible.
    My Samsung G8 would also support LDAC.

    However. "Properly implemented" - that's the key. The whole RPI BT stack is still chaos territory.
    It took me already 1 day to get an idea what's going on and to get my phone paired.
    That's kind of exhausting. I'll keep digging for a while.

    The other deal-breaker could be the concurrent Wifi/BT operation issue. Perhaps that'll be gone on the PI4.

    I buy a lot of music on Amazon, but I just download as mp3 (or buy/rip CD).

    For subscription I prefer Spotify, good blend of huge catalog and good quality.

    Amazon Music HD Ultra service plugin?

    Are there any new plugins for my Squeezebox touch that will allow streaming from Amazon Music HD Ultra?

    Thanks!

    No. There is still no native plugin for Amazon Music and there will be
    no plugin as long as Amazon does not provide open access to theire API :-(.

    However, you can use the Amazon Music app on iOS and stream the music
    via AirPlay to a LMS player.

    this will work with bitrates up to CD quality, but not for hires content.

    Maybe it is also possible to stream Amazon from an Echo or another
    Amazon device to LMS, but I have no such a device and have therefore
    never tested it.

    Ciao,

    I was afraid that was still the case. I appreciate your feedback!
