My Question or Issue
i own a Marantz NR1605, with spotify connect. i can see it as a device where to play my music from every PC where the spotify app is installed, but every time i search it from my phone, i cannot find it.
it has been an issue sometimes in the past, but with the latest versions of the app, i cannot see it every time i try.
the AV receiver is connected to the LAN via ethernet, and has its own IP address.
when i send my music to the receiver via PC app, then the android app sees it, and everything goes fine.

I'm having the same issue with the same receiver. I can connect via airplay but no longer via Connect. I notice that if you search for Marantz on the Spotify Connect site you no longer get any results, and scrolling through the supported devices doesn't show any Marantz products either.
It looks like Spotify quietly dropped support for Marantz or vice versa, which is odd considering Denon still shows as a supported brand (and I can connect to my Denon AVR via Connect still) and they're the same company as Marantz. It's also shady on one or both's parts since these are $500-2000+ AV receivers still advertising Connect as a feature.
