Over the past flew days we have received numerous calls asking how do I play Amazon’s new HD music services?
The short answer is for people using Sonos, only the HD High Definition (16-bit/44 kHz) version can be played. Owners of Linn and Devialet streamer can use AirPlay at the higher Ultra HD (24-bit/192 kHz) rate.
