Part 3. Download Amazon Music HD/Ultra HD via ViWizard

Downloading your favorite songs in HD or Ultra HD for offline listening sounds good. However, you need to be aware that once your subscription is expired or is canceled, it is not possible to access those downloaded HD tracks anymore. What's more, we know that not all tracks are in Ultra HD. That means, Amazon Music can not give you what you want if you are obsessed with the highest audio quality.

So we recommend a third-party tool for you to solve the two troubles above --- ViWizard Amazon Music Converter. It can help you download songs from Amazon Music in FLAC and other common formats. Also, you are able to adjust the sample rate up to 19.2kHZ and the bit rate up to 24-bit same as Amazon Music Ultra HD.

If you merely want to download Amazon HD/Ultra HD Music for offline listening without Amazon Music on your device, ViWizard Amazon Music Converter also meets your needs. Amazon HD and Ultra HD tracks are protected by DRM and come in FLAC format, and you can only listen to them on the Amazon Music app. But with the help of ViWizard, you can download Amazon Music songs to FLAC and play them freely.
