I have a fast adsl of 70 mbs

I have my Sony 5100 bluray hardwired by cat 5 direct on my router.

A. Netflix plays superb, 3d as well as superhd

B. vudu perfect on hdx, speed test is top rating everytime

C amazon inst checks the connection speed, get 14,7 mbps, and start to play

But then it suddenly drops down to 1.1, and never get any higher speed.
And thus it stops after some seconds, I guess it is filling its buffer

I cannot understand this, it has been like this for several weeks ;(

Unfortunately, it sounds like your ISP is causing the bottleneck in its route to Amazon, or you're just having bad luck when you connect. I sometimes have similar issues with Amazon in the evenings.

You can try using a different DNS server in your router setup, might help or might not.
