Spotify Connect: Denon Connection Loss (Network Restart)


Spotify Connect: Denon Connection Loss (Network Restart)

hello, i have the following problem. 

Since few days i cannot use spotify connect to my denon receiver (4100w) anymore.

The  connection itself works and it plays music for 1 second, but immediately after connect it seems the receiver loses network connection and restarts the service.


before I never had any problems. No changes in my network, firmware or receiver settings. Only spotifuggle version is new.


tried to reboot everything, set static ip to receiver, reinstalled spotify on mobile and pc, no solution.


please help, I'm not able to use it anymore 😞



Br, sebastian.

Still waiting for an official answer from Spotify...


The thing is, I don't understand why the "connect" service is so unstable. From my understanding, it is the same stream which is used by a "Spotify connect" device and any other usual devices.

Where does the difference come from?


How to report this important issue to Spotify Support team ??

Today I'm totally unable to use Spotify Connect feature... 😞 !!

Please provide a solution or I'll have to try other streaming providers.

I am. I think its because i had spotify reset my account back a few months ago and ps4 is still using the old account witch should now be gone. But im still getting the network error message everytime i try to pull it up. I cant even link up using my phone through wifi connection to the ps4.


Please help.

Hi Adam, I have exactly the same problem, but with a Onkyo TX 8150 receiver. I really need a solution. Thanks in advance.

Pluging in an ethernet cable seems to have solved the issue. I was despaired the AirPlay and SpotifyConnect features kept de-activating when used on wifi (I had to go through the quick setup sequence every time), but as soon as I tried a cable connection it worked like magic. I can now turn on the Ceol from the Spotify App on all my devices. I also see it on the list of AirPlay compatible devices on my iPad, which was not the case previously.

It is a shame the wifi connection is so unstable, but at least everything works now...

I have a Denon s900w and it's still having trouble staying connected via Spotify connect . used to work fine. Now it's always inconsistent. What is the solution? You said problem solved on your website but there was no solution offered that I could find. If I try and do anything on my smart phone it disconnects the Denon almost immediately.

I have similar problem all the time with Denon DNP 730 AE. The only solution I found is to turn off the power but not the power button, you have to remove the cable out of the electrical outlet for a while.

I didn't try cable connection I used only Wi-Fi.

Sometimes it seem to be working correctly but new software update appears and problems as well.

Thanks for the tip. I'll try that.

Good to read I am not alone with my Spotify connect Denon Ceol Piccolo N9 issue.


New update new problems, it never (2-3 year owner) worked perfect. Tried network (wired and wifi) in various configurations.


The biggest reason for me to buy the Denon was Spotify Connect, bad call!
