[Music] ASIO Output Support

Status: Case Closed

Please can you add support for an ASIO audio output device?

 

As a owner of a separate headphone DAC + Amp, I get much better quality music when I'm using the bit-perfect ASIO output rather than DirectSound, which changes the audio bitstream before it reaches the DAC. ASIO output would be a great compliment to the Spotify high-quality streaming.

Thanks!

Dear Spotify,

I've really enjoyed your program, however, you seem to continually ignore your customers inquiries.

"Hey everyone, currently we don't have plans for this in our timeline. However, if this continues to grow we will keep passing this feedback on to our internal teams. Thank you for coming to the Idea Exchange with your feedback!"

 

I've seen this on about 10 different threads, and those are just the ones that I'm concerned about. 

 

You do not seem very committed to improving your platforms, and after seeing this thread (6 years of people asking for a simple thing like getting ASIO support) I think it's time for me to switch over to TIDAL.

 

Let me know when you guys get serious.

Just implement it, it wont cost you anything and really makes a big difference

Even the crappy iTunes for Windows software has WASAPI playback so I can isolate its bitperfect playback straight to my external DAC while the rest of system sounds and directsound programs are directed to another sound output (muted of course) so that there's no way that those system sounds and directsound can interfere with low latency playback from iTunes.

Can we get this from a "not right now", to "we are working on this **bleep**ing right now"?  Seriously Fidelify sounded that much better that I liked using it instead of the offical client.  I had to swap because of a switch to linux and it sucks. It is starting to look like apple music may become an alternative I will take because of this.  when I get my Massdrop x Asrist Audio R2-R DAC and Massdrop x Koss electrostatic headspeakers

2018 and still no Asio4all or Wasapi? 

Please add it. It will be so much better.

Thanks

Thanks.

It's 2019 and I really want this feature! Exactly what is new or interesting with Spotify since I signed up? Still streaming music, not seeing any customisation options or added functionality for audiophiles.

Not Right Now is just your way of telling us, go f.. yourself.

 

Really sorry for swearing but how much resources you need to implement this feature?

 

Guys and gals don't count on Spotify, we're simply 1% audience that cares about the sound quality.

Even if all of us canceled the subscription Spotify would not notice.
