I guess the only way to get what I want would be to force the firmware installation of the USA version and it would appear that only the agents can do that. I don't think they would be too keen to help!!
I presume, until someone works out how to do it and shares it, I'm stuck!
All I can do at the moment is run Pandora from my Roku. I could also run Spotify from there, but only if I get the premium version - I'm happy with the free Spotify.
Such a pity as I consider Spotify to be a huge feature of this AVR
Is your older smartphone an Android mobile phone with KitKat OS? Try installing the latest Spotify app on your android device and on the X3100W switch over source to NETWORK. See if the Spotify app is able to recognize the X3100W as a DLNA 'speaker' via Spotify connect feature.
You should then be able to stream your playlist from the android device running Spotify app to the X3100W via Spotify connect.
I'll do this test on an older Samsung Note 2 smartphone (model GN-N7100) using Android OS 4.4.2 with the current Spotify app with the Marantz SR7009 later on this evening to see if it works. Will report back to the thread.
