Spotify plays DS remotely?
Today I noticed that my Spotfy web version I use at work told me I am playing through my Akurate DSM. That is 35 km from my office. And when mentioning this at home our 17-year old daughter said she has sometimes heard music in the living room when home alone. This is a little spooky and I will at least switch off my power amps from now on.

Hi per a,

This is a "feature" of Spotify over which we have no control.

When you select the DS as a Spotify receiver, your DS becomes associated with your Spotify account. The result of this is that, rather than your DS just being seen by Spotify when you're connected to your local network at home, your DS is available wherever you are logged into Spotify.

I've found the only way to avoid the phantom listening sessions (without powering down hardware) is to try to remember to deselect my DS in the Spotify app before I start listening elsewhere.

Regards,
Gregg

No problem at all

I am actually happy with Spotify at the moment and I have ended the Tidal subscription. My family all use S and it find it very good now.
