All music lovers can appreciate better music quality. Now, Sony wants to give it to them. The company just announced that its Music Unlimited service is now streaming 320kbps AAC high-fidelity audio to computers, Android smartphones and tablets, and the PlayStation 3.

To get the goods, you need to go into the Music Unlimited’s settings menu and turn on the high-quality streaming option. From there, you can get songs in 320kbps AAC high-fidelity audio.

Of course, you’re also going to need a Music Unlimited subscription. The cloud-based digital music service features over 18 million songs on-demand and to a variety of devices, including the aforementioned computers, PS3, smartphones and tablets, as well as iOS devices, the PlayStation Vita, Sony Bravia HDTVs, and Sony home video and audio devices. Subscription prices start at $4.99 for home use, with mobile access costing $9.99 per month.

For now, the option is only available on the PS3, Android smartphones and tablets, the Android Walkman, and web apps. Sony says that it plans to upgrade other Music Unlimited-compatible devices later this year.
