I signed up for Amazon HD from my Firestick 4k. It is streaming 24bit/192 but my Denon 3400 can only play 16 bit. Do I need a different amp to get the higher quality music?

I think the bottle neck is the FireTV. Your Denon has the HEOS app just load it on your phone/tablet and you can get full 192/24 from Amazon HD directly streaming to the AVR.

Save yourself a lot of heartache and buy a Nvidia Shield and store your music on a NAS. I run Plex on the Shield and don't know why I wasted my time with HEOS or my Denon x4400's own USB interface.

I (actually my lovely wife) found the fix. Follow the following steps: 1)reset Fire tv to factory defaults (sorry to have to do all setups again) 2) Fire Tv will update to latest version 3)Go to Setings-applications-Appstore and disable automatic application updates 4) Launch Amazon Music, if it prompts for update, choose ignore update and launch 5) Enable ultra hd streaming in Amazon Music hd app. 6) Ensure app is 3.2.148.0 7) Enjoy 24 bit streaming.
