Amazon prime through ds
How do I get Amazon Prime through my Linn DS? The Sonus in my kitchen does it automatically.

RE: Amazon prime through ds
The only lossy streaming service Linn supports directly is Spotify. As you have a DS, the only way to stream from Amazon to it is by songcasting (from a PC or Mac) or airplaying from another device (Airplay for Apple iOS and I think there's an equivalent for Android).

The Android version needs Google hardware that Linn hasn't and won't have.

Really? So Android devices can't send anything to a DS? There must be a way...

Bubble DS could provide a service, but I have no idea if that would be simple to implement or if the controls would be awkward, but technically there is no need for additional hardware.

Chromecast requires additional hardware. There is a post on this forum by one of the Linn techies about it. It is the closet thing Android has to Apple Airplay but does have this limitation.
