Amazon Hi Res Music?

Read a article in news today that Amazon was starting a new Hi Res music service. I am a Amazon prime member and have Amazon music included. My question is if/how I would be able to listen to this Hi Res music in my Tesla?

Amazon's new service promises to stream songs at upto 24 bits with sample rate of up to 192kHz.
Unfortunately, Tesla does supports neither CarPlay nor AndroidAuto, so the only way you could stream it to the car's speakers is via BlueTooth.

Doubly sadly, Tesla's BT implementation only supports the default Bluetooth Subband Coding (SBC), not the higher quality aptX codec for music streaming, SBC overlays lossy compression for BT transmission, so whatever quality gains Amazon is introducing with its service will be butchered by Tesla's BT transmission link.
