Onkyo to support Spotify in the US on a several of its Home Theater
Now that you can enjoy Spotify in the US, I personally don’t use it much, you will be glad to learn that Onkyo announced in North America the support of Spotify on several of its Home Theaters.
Thanks to a Firmware upgrade that will be available for your to download in the coming few days, all 2011 Network capable receivers starting from the TX-NR609 will be capable to let you access to your Sportify premium account and enjoy unlimited music access.
Spotify Premium subscribers in seven countries (UK, France, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Netherlands, and Norway) already use Spotify to expand their musical horizons. Now they will also be able to listen to the service via their Onkyo home entertainment systems in the United States.
Onkyo will provide a firmware update that will enable its 2011 network capable receivers beginning with the TX-NR609 to support Spotify. Onkyo will also be introducing additional networked Spotify-ready products in the near future. All you need to enjoy Spotify on Onkyo is an internet connection and a Spotify Premium account.
The addition of Spotify offers Premium subscribers instant access to one of the biggest music libraries in the world, in excellent sound quality, courtesy of Onkyo’s seamless integration of Spotify’s high quality streaming.
‘We are excited to be able to provide this update to owners of our 2011 network receivers beginning with model TX-NR609,” says Paul Wasek, Onkyo USA’s National Marketing Manager. “Spotify is an absolute must-have for Onkyo customers who want to enjoy their favorite music in the highest quality at home.”
“We are very excited to be bringing Spotify to the US, and to be working with partners such as Onkyo towards our goal of making all the world’s music available for everyone to enjoy, whenever they want it and wherever they are.” Ken Parks Chief Content Officer and Managing Director, Spotify, North America.
Spotify is simple and intuitive to operate via the television screen connected to Onkyo home theater receivers. With a few simple clicks on your remote control you’re given quick, scrolling onscreen access to your own and collaborative playlists as well as Spotify’s ‘What’s New?’ and ‘Starred’ features. Album cover art is displayed onscreen and subscribers can explore further to browse artists, albums and tracks.
