Sony just confirmed to me that their 2015 line-up of receivers, do not support Spotify Connect, even while all specification sheets do mention it being supported. Too bad I already bought myself a STR-DN1060.
So the only option I now have is Google Cast. But that will not be supported by Spotify because of Spotify Connect. How stupid is that?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I double checked your statement with our European Audio product team and it is not correct. This is the info they provided me:
The STR-DN1060 AV Receiver belongs to a family of audio products from Sony that are all compatible with Spotify Connect. An automatic firmware update will be provided that will allow access to Spotify Connect. The firmware update timing varies by product and the schedule is as follows:
STR-DN1060 and STR-DN860 AV Receivers, HT-XT3 Sound Base, HT-ST9 and HT-NT3 Sound Bars : 20th June 2015
SRS-X99, SRS-X88 and SRS- X77 Wireless Speakers : 15th June 2015
I hope this clarifies for everybody. For any further Sony product specific questions you are always free to ask it here
In the meantime if you could let me know who gave you that information, I can make sure that such wrong information is not being distributed.
