Got exactly the same problem here, a friend controlling my brand new Denon amp having logged into my avrs Spotify Connect feature. I feel like I've lost control of my equipment, not to mention the risk it poses to my speakers, potentially costing me a fortune if they are accidentally blown. It's absolutely crazy.
Spotify how can i remove this account from my amplifier?
I have a similar dilemma too now, after reading this thread. Just bought a new Yamaha RXA750 amp mainly for Spotify connectivity amongst other features any how I loved how friends could come round and we could all just play our Spotify accounts and pick songs. I don't want them to be able to control my amp where ever and when ever they want though. I was at the gym an on their wifi yet I still managed to play my Spotify through my amp at home. Terrifying the Mrs which is brilliant but I know don't want any of my friends finding out about this. What's everyone doing on this front?
Correct. You should be able to remove a device from your system. Devices which I sold on ebay still show up in my device list. This my be especially annoying when I accidentally blast 2Chains through a stranger's office speaker!
No, Spotify's gone dark on the matter. It's absolutely crazy I can't stop someone from accessing my £1,400 amp without disconnecting it from the internet and losing all online/home network functionality. I'm absolutely fuming that this isn't being addressed by Spotify.
The way the API works is what prevents users from disconnecting devices remotely, and I agree it should be fixed.
For the time being, the best way to get rid of unwanted devices is to create a new account, and then contact customer support so they can migrate your Premium privileges (if you have them), library, playlists, friends, etc. to this new account.
That will give you a fresh start.

Re: Can I delete a Spotify Connect device from the list?
I want it to be the other way. The Spotify Connect device should be able to delete connected devices. Some how like lease time or force disconnect.
And as mentioned before this is an important feature. Don't want other people than myself and my family to be able to play on our system. Problebly five of my friends can play on my system now from the last gathering we had at my place. The only good thing is that they don't know that.
