How to connect your Spotify app

We recommend strongly that you use your Spotify app. It is easy to connect and that is the way you normally listen to Spotify, right? All family members and guests can easily connect the network music player to the Spotify apps on their own phones, tablets or PCs.

Be sure that you have a Spotify premium account - if you don't, get it here. You will really enjoy the premium account. It offers high quality audio, plays any song anywhere, is totally ad free, has unlimited skips. You can listen offline as well which is a great feature, and maybe most important of all - you can stream Spotify via your network music player.

The music is directly streamed from Spotify's servers to your phone or tablet - leaving your phone free for making calls and all other uses. You only use your phone to control music playback. You can also just pick up the music where you left off when switching between your phone, tablet or computer. It is seamless streaming.

This is how to connect:

  • Start the Spotify app. 
  • Click on Your Library in the lower right corner.
  • Go to settings by clicking on the cog wheel in the right upper corner.

  • Scroll down to Connect to a device and click on the big button named 'DEVICES MENU'.
  • Choose 'player'.   . . .  and the app connects to the your network music player.
  • Play and enjoy. It is that easy. 


Remember to set the network music player volume to maximum volume, since the volume range is set by the player. This is done using the web page player.local. It is always better to control the volume by using the Spotify app instead. (The maximum volume is defined by the previous volume setting that you made using the player.)

Note that you can also reach Spotify directly from the network music player without using the Spotify app, but first you have to enter your Spotify premium username and password in the settings of the network music player. This is only done once. After that you can access Spotify through the player's web page or third party apps - web page: player.local

All of the above works well for family accounts as well. 


Why Spotify?

Undoubtedly the best and the biggest music streaming service on the Internet with 170 million users, over 40 million songs, over 3 billion available playlists to enjoy and a coverage of nearly 80 countries all around the world makes Spotify the obvious choice to continue to enjoy music in the new digital era.

Since all Retro Audiophile Design products are configured with Spotify Connect you can use the Spotify app on your phone to stream music. That is a great feature because it opens up all the possibilities and advance options for modern streaming of today. Or use the Spotify app on your PC and Mac.

Besides the enormous variety of all kind of music it is maybe Spotify’s smart way of personalizing your experience of listening and discovering new music that you will love the most. Spotify analyzes what you currently are listening to and creates customized recommendations, such as playlists and music suggestions based on the genres and artists you are listening to regularly.

You will love your own Discover Weekly playlist or the Release Radar list. Theses playlists are refreshed weekly with each 30 new songs you have most likely never heard of but will probably enjoy because they are chosen based on your most recent listening habits and new releases.

Playlists are an essential part of your experience. When you create playlist, you can invite friends to contribute too to the playlists for a more shared experience or follow playlists of others on Spotify. You might even get some backing of the AI assisted playlisting capability which uses machine learning to make your lists even more customized.
