I've an Onkyo CR-N755 network receiver.  This also can't log in to Spotify since mid July.  I was told by Spottify "chat support" that Onkyo network receivers are no longer supported by Spotify.  It looks like a lot of other makers devices including "speakers" are no longer supported.   Without this, Spotify is no use to me and is not meeting my need as a customer.   

So can Spotify be persuaded to reverse this (e.g. by online petition)?   Would anybody like to start a petition?

It's annoying that I have two 5009's, and a Premium account.  As soon as the Vodafone account runs out, that's it.  I have heard Apple Music is the one to go for these days.

I have to say that I sincerely hope that there was a HUGE technological issue that caused you to sratt blocking the TX8050 because I think it was the Stupidist decision EVER.
