    Hi Azkino

    We report 16 bit as CD quality and 24 bit as HR regardless of bit-rate.

    We play whatever the service gives us. I hope that clarifies it for you

    Did you apply the latest player update and reboot? What does the Node2i log file say as the resolution? I had a problem with 24/192 tracks that went away with a reboot and upgrade. Also what forum for Amazon Music do you use?

    I should have said - upgrade then reboot

    I have the latest update on the Node 2i. Here’s what I’m seeing in the logs for the first track on La La Land album.

    Amazon

    flc: bitrate=993621: 44100/24/2

    Qobuz

    flc: bitrate=1693860: 44100/24/2

    The DAC is showing 16 bit for Amazon and 24 bit for Qobuz.

    Here’s the link to the Amazon forum if it’s ok to post here: https://www.amazonforum.com/forums/digital-content/amazon-music/523313-amazon-music-hd-now-streaming-in-high-definition

    Thanks for the reply Tony, where’s the 24 bit information coming from, some kind of metadata from the service or the file itself? I’m just curious why the DAC was reporting it as 16 bit, maybe it’s using the bitrate or something. Anyway, based on the bitrate comparison, it looks like it’s an issue with Amazon Music.

    It is what is detected when the file is decoded
