Denon and Marantz Receivers Get Updated with Spotify

Posted Thu Sep 6, 2012 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The popular music streaming service hits several connected receivers, offering unlimited streaming to subscribers.

Receivers from both Denon and Marantz got an extra little boost today thanks to the addition of the Spotify music streaming service. Spotify says that a quick firmware update will get you up and running, and that Premium subscribers will be able to listen to their music on their receivers.

What's not specified is what this means for those that don't shell out for Premium. On smartphones, those that use the app for free can still use the Pandora like radio functionality, but there's no word on whether this will work on receivers.

The Denon models updateable to add Spotify are the AVR-4520CI, AVR-3313CI, AVR-2313CI and AVR-2113CI, and AVR-1913.

The Marantz receivers eligible for the update are the AV7701, SR7007, SR6007, SR5007 and NR1603.
