So I've been struggling with audio quality for more than a year now. The main problem is that on a 5.1 system the audio sounds flat, lacking bass and the rear speakers are not used, even though speaker fill is turned on in the Realtek driver.
In the last months, years, feels like ages I tried various things and found a not really optimal solution. I'll list these and I'll also post a few suggestions for Spotify, because their player is really VERY VERY lacking basic functionality.
So I suggest you add an option to swap these outputs in the app, so I don't have to switch it everytime I want to use your service, or even better would be to add much needed freedom in various aspects of the player:
All in all it is really frustrating that I can't get bearable sound quality out of a service I'm paying for. It drives away people who listen to on anything other than a 2.0 system or headphones.
