[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!

Please add ASIO support, I can then utilise mheadache magic, modded x cans tube headphone amp and senn hd650s.

 

BTW spotify is awesome and improving all the time.

Please add ASIO or WASAPI support in Spotify. We really need this option to get high quality sound from our external DAC's!

Fully agree that Spotify should add WASAPI or ASIO or both for Bitperfect playback through Windows. Will start paying for the service when this is available.

Personnaly, I would be happy with just WASAPI support.

Just bit on an external DAC/AMP combo myself and it is disheartening to see this is still unresolved a year after it was suggested!!  I am hoping that the Spotify team will get on this sooner than later, as I can see from the user comments it would make a *lot* of people happy (especially that in the Audiophile community).  And hey, I'd rather pay $9.95 to use Spotify legally than torrent music, but it's nice to be able to have ASIO support playing mp3/FLAC through Foobar or other media players.
