I have the same problem with two Yamaha Wx-010 using Spotify connect with premium account. I bought the speakers one week ago and they never worked.

I have found that using a different router fixed my problem, perhaps your
router settings block something.

I have the same problem. Unfortunately the link you posted is not reachable anymore.

I can connect using airplay to the speaker but Spotify doesn’t work reliably. Sometimes only after removing power and plugging it in again.

 Same problem here with yamaha wx50 preamp network player. All other services running well, like tidal, deezer, network radio, etc. Only Spotfy stop working when playing a song and it's hard to reconnect again.

 

very frustrating.

Same issue. Have 3 WX030.  Spotify drops constantly.  If rooms are connected it will only reconnect to the master.  To reconnect the other rooms requires powering them off and on and reconnecting.  Performance from a local server is rock solid.  It's only Spotify with the problem.

I have the same problem with my WX-010 and WX-030. Everthing worked for nearly a year but since the end of february I can't connect from the spotify android app. Tried different smartphones, resetting the devices and even a different router but none of these have helped. Every other service works without problems.

It's possible to connect with the desktop app from my laptop and use the smartphone afterwards, but as soon as I stop playing or choose a different device, the yamaha device disappears from the android app.

Not sure if my information will help anyone but I have had to do a few different things to make my setup work.

 

First: my LGV30 Android musicCast app sucks. Most of the time when I use the app it can't find my speakers. Or, it finds only the master and not the linked speakers. My iPad (used only for music) works every time without any problems. Once I get the musicCast app going on my iPad with Spotify I can then use my Android app to control it if I want. Not sure why that is, but its what works for me. So we usually set the ipad up in the kitchen and then can stick the phone in my pocket and walk around the house or be outside on the patio with my phone to control everything from there.

 

Second: I have two WX-10's in different rooms. At first I couldn't get anything to work reliably. My first problem was when linking the two speakers together (master/link). The music was choppy. It would go in and out all the time and sometimes the "link" speaker would just stop playing.... Then it would start again.

 

I figured out that Yamaha musicCast uses 2.4ghz radio band. Everything wifi at my house was on the 2.4ghz band including Android TV's, baby monitor and Surveillance. I basically switched every wifi device in my house to the 5ghz band and all was good after that. Everything on the 2.4 was competing for radio signal which was causing the interference.

 

I hope Yamaha comes out with better customer support and updates. The speakers are great, quality is great and the brand has been around for ever. They need to hire some IT geeks ASAP to fix some of these bugs.

Just got my pair of WX-010. Can not connect to Spotify using Connect. Tried all the trix, but no. What are my alternatives if I want to use a pair? Can use one as a blue toorh soeaker, though.

I presume you have downloaded the MusicCast app and both speakers have the newest firmware update?

 

You need to make sure your musicCast speakers are on the same network as your mobile device.

 

Once you get your speakers on the same network then you should see your speakers on the Spotify App. You can get to your Spotify app from the MusicCast app by clicking the Spotify button.

 

Make sure your speakers are powered on (not in standby).
