Amazon is launching a lossless music streaming service to take on Tidal. Amazon Music HD is $5 more than the current plans (both individual and family). For an individual plan this means you’re looking at $13 a month if you are a Prime member and $15/month otherwise.

The service offers millions of songs with lossless encoding in the so-called Ultra HD quality – 24-bit with a sampling rate of 192KHz. There are also over 50 million HD quality songs, that’s losslessly compressed 16-bit 44.1KHz audio.

If you want to stream music, you’ll need at least a 1.5-2Mbps LTE connection for HD…
