Streaming Quality in Onkyo

tab
Casual Listener

I use spotify with my Onkyo TX 8050, on my macbook, iPhone and iPad. Now I found that you can change the streaming quality (normal / high / extreme) for each device seperately; standard is low. I'd like to stream to my Onkyo with 320 kbit/s (extreme). Does anyone know where I can change the settings for the Onkyo? Thank you!

The addition of Spotify’s music service offers subscribers instant access to over 10 million songs in excellent sound quality, courtesy of Onkyo’s seamless integration of Spotify’s 320kbps bitrate and high quality Ogg Vorbis codec.

 

However, today we have access to 15 million songs (i think).

Long live Onkyo and Spotify. Just as good integration as beautiful combination.

I'm in same situation, don't have a clue..

It depends on who made the software in our Onkyo (i have the TX-NR709), the devs knows the answer.
Either case, i think support @ Spotify could find the answer if they care.

How are you measuring the quality?

I am comparing audio streamed through the bluetooth A2DP mode and also with the Onkyo built in Spotify app even with updated firmware. 

 

Listening to the audio streamed through bluetooth via the Spotify app on my Google Samsung Nexus 10 is better than the Onkyo built in Spotify app. 

 

However the Bluetooth A2DP only samples at 16 bit 44.1 kHz. Which is a far cry from most high end SACD or Blu Ray audio which samples at 24 bit and 192 kHz. 

 

Please advise.

Did you every get this resolved.  I have very poor quality on my Onkyo but OK elsewhere.

 

I run Linux and use the web browser but can't find out how to set the quality for the browser yet alone the Onkyo player!

Web browser always streams at 160kbps (normal quality) as it does not have support for premium high quality playback yet.

Are you streaming Spotify directly through Onkyo or from another device?

Hi

 

I am streaming directly to the Onkyo using the built in Onkyo app.  I have set up the device with it's own password and is independant of any other device.

 

Alas I can't find any way of changing the streaming quality to the Onkyo.

Onkyo (and almost all hardware devices) should stream at 320kbps only so you shouldn't need to manually set it anywhere.
