Spotify Connect can now be used on Linn products using firmware Davaar59 (Aug 2017) or later firmware. (That is, if your {{{1}}} has had a software update after Aug 2017 then you can use Spotify connect)
This allows you to select and Play your Spotify music on your Linn DS/DSM players and use the internal volume control on the Linn DS/DSM.

To connect up your Spotify account to the {{{1}}}:
  1. On your control device, iPad/Android/PC/MAC etc, connect to the same computer network as you Linn DS/DSM
  2. Start your Spotify app, (if it is already open then close the App, wait a few seconds, and open the App)
  3. Now check the Spotify Speakers icon to find your Linn DS. (In some cases you may have to power cycle your {{{1}}} before this is seen)
  4. Select you Linn product and you can now play to the {{{1}}} from the Spotify account and control the {{{1}}} volume.

This is web controlled and if your {{{1}}} has already been paired with your Spotify account you will be able to control even if you are not on the same ethernet network.(So be careful that if you accidentally select the {{{1}}} as a Spotify speaker and put the volume up high and you are not at home)
