Spotify partners with Yamaha, brings music to your home theater
Yamaha is one of the leading names in the home theater industry, bringing devices to your living room such as its line of A/V receivers. As you know, many of these devices are now "connected", meaning they come with Ethernet and even WiFi.
Now Spotify announces a partnership with Yamaha that will bring its streaming music to your living room. The hardware maker is bringing access to select versions of its receivers.
"Another innovation from our friends at Yamaha! They’re the latest hardware brand to take up Spotify Connect. They’re providing new firmware that will work with Spotify Connect, giving you a better way to enjoy music at home", says Diego Planas Rego of Spotify.
The update will be pushed out via a software update. It will come to RX-Vx75 and RX-Ax30 network A/V receivers. The update will be free, but Spotify Connect is not. However, you can get a free 30-day trial to try it out.
