"I'm an Amazon Music Unlimited subscriber. I can stream lossless music from Amazon. I know that Amazon Music HD uses FLAC format, but how can I download FLAC from Amazon Music?"
Amazon Music HD is made in lossless FLAC format, providing HD audio (CD-quality; 16 bits and 44.1kHz sample rate), and Ultra HD audio (24-bit and up to 192kHz sample rate) to keep the original audio quality. But in fact, Amazon puts restricted encryption on their FLAC music files for limiting music playback, which means you can stream lossless FLAC Amazon songs only on several devices coming with the Amazon Music app.
While the FLAC files we widely use are Free Lossless Audio Codec, a music format similar to MP3. It offers better quality than CDs but at half the size. More importantly, FLAC is an open-source and royalty-free format, you'll be able to use it on most devices like smartphones, tablets, and more.
Though you can download FLAC lossless songs directly from Amazon Music, all offline content is unusable on other media players due to its protection. To download and convert Amazon Music to lossless FLAC files, you need to find a way to decode them.
