NUVO Legrand Streaming Problems
I have a 5 room NUVO Legrand WHA system. Came with the house. I have struggled to find a streaming service that works really well with it so I'm hoping someone can advise or suggest how to fix it. When it works it is fantastic. Using my phone I can turn off/on and control volume in any room.
Options available are:
Spotify - Love Spotify, hate the app integration with the system (IOS). If I open the Spotify app to change the music or see the current song it would usually switch from playing on the system to playing on my phone. Internet research implies this is a known bug with Spotify for many components.
Pandora - Works well but I like the ability to select the exact music I want to listen to instead of stations.
Deezer - works OK. 1 out of 5 times I get "Deezer unavailable" which requires finding a random song to play that it is OK with and then go back to what I wanted. Also the playlists and stations in it are not awesome.
Alexa - seems to only work with a smart speaker I don't have.
Napster - Crashed a lot
The others don't offer specific music selection so I didn't try them.
Using bluetooth doesn't work because I would use my phone and walk around the house...connection would fail.
Local device library (IOS) doesn't work with most music because of a DRM thing.
In a perfect world I could just use some kind of Apple Music device that I could control with my phone and was wired into the NUVO hardware but short of buying a new receiver I don't know what that device would be.
I'm guessing I'll get a few switch to android suggestions but I'm not yet angry enough with Apple to convert.
