I have a Samsung HW-MS550 and HW-MS650 soundbar and both soundbars have a serious volume control problem when using Spotify Connect.
When I try to change the volume from inside the Spotify app, the soundbars increase the volume with increments of 7 steps. This is way to course and results in either too low volume or way to loud volume. The volume increment should obviously be 1 step at the time.
The problem is also described in the following (locked?) topics:
But also on the Samsung forums:
Is there any chance that this problem will be fixed any time soon? The issue exists for 1.5 years by now.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is a problem that could (should?) be handled by your soundbar/amplifier. Spotify just provides a 1-100% of max volume. How -your devices maps that to a device volume is up to the device. I would not like to have 100% mapped to max volume on a 200W amplifier. Harman Kardon in their Citation AMP has an option to set max volume (for streaming clients) in their web interface. Setting it at 10% makes 60% in Spotify a comfortable listening level.
