@HTNUT1975 : you wrote that you use Spotify via Airplay from iphone/ipad, and, if you launch it from let's say ipad, you can control it from iphone via Spotify connect, am I correct?

What about using Spotify from the PC, via spotify connect feature, does it detect your Denon?

Spotify connect is a pretty nice feature, I wouln't want to control spotify via remote control.. don't even know if it can be controlled via Denon's Android app?

I'm still choosing beetwen SR7009 and 4520CI for this reason - SR7009 doesn't have builtin Spotify client (so cannot control it from remote control), but has support for Spotify connect, which is much nicer, IMO.

Other option for me would be to buy 4520 + chromecast audio, to which the stream can be cast using Spotify connect...

Thanks in advance for any input!

Unfortunately it does not see my Denon's native Spotify. It would only see if my iPad or iPhone were connected via airplay. By the way, chromecast would be PERFECT. That would essentially get you what I get with airplay. Even if my Denon didn't have airplay, I would just use the apply tv, which is what I used to do. I just don't think that feature alone is a difference-maker. Another option would be to get something like a bluesound node 2, but then you're starting to add a lot of money into the picture. Chromecast would get you a very reliable way of doing what you want to do for cheap, and I really don't think the user experience would be any different than what I do with airplay.

This functionality requires Spotify Connect, which the 4520 doesn't have. It has a built-in Spotify app but the actual Spotify Connect integration wasn't around back then. Newer models have it though.

Yes, understood. I just realized that my PS4 has a Spotify client with support for Spotify connect, so that would be a workaround before getting chromecast audio.

Your opinion of these 3 receivers?

its regardless of the input as I loose the entire Denon display ie. no volume, menu controls. It basically stops outputting a video signal until I unplug the hdmi's and power cycle the receiver. I've called support, but they aren't helpful. They want me to send the receiver out for service, but I can't loose the unit as it controls too much in the house. The other issue is it's hard to replicate as it happens sporadically (sometimes it works fine for a few weeks, sometimes it happens multiple times a day)
