Spotify is extremely popular with many music lovers, so it is essential that the complete MOON MiND2 streaming platform now also supports this offering, with regard to Spotify HiFi.
Spotify HiFi, so that the offer of the leading streaming service will be available in the course of this year at least in “CD quality” and no longer only in lossy form. The central interface for supporting this offer is once again Spotify Connect. In this respect, it is extremely important for manufacturers in the streaming sector to support this interface.
This step has now also been taken by the Canadian hi-fi manufacturer MOON by Simaudio Ltd. After announcing in December of last year that the MOON MiND2 streaming platform supports Apple AirPlay 2, they have now announced that Spotify is also available as a further option for convenient music streaming via Spotify Connect.
Spotify Connect as the basis for Spotify HiFi
Spotify Connect is a convenient way to listen to music at home, it says. Millions of songs and podcasts are instantly available, the company says. Users simply open the Spotify app on their smartphone or tablet, select a track they want to listen to, choose their MOON device and start listening. MOON’s superior audio technology is a perfect foundation for this and delivers an unforgettable performance.
The company states that all new streaming solutions from MOON by Simaudio should support Spotify Connect, via the proprietary streaming platform MiND2, this abbreviation standing for Moon Intelligent Network Device. Existing customers can of course also use the functionality, via a simple firmware update.
Support for Spotify via Spotify Connect, and therefore Spotify HiFi in the future, is available for the MOON ACE All-in-One Music System, MOON MiND 2 Network Player, MOON 280D Streaming DAC, MOON 390 Network Player/ Preamplifier, MOON 680D Streaming DAC, as well as MOON 780D v2 Streaming DAC.
“Spotify Connect provides MOON owners with another connectivity option, and the Spotify music library will now benefit from the MOON’s renowned detailed and natural audio playback. I know our customers will welcome this new addition to our products.”Etienne Gautier, Export Sales Manager MOON by Simaudio
Getting to the point
After MOON by Simaudio equipped the streaming platform MOON MiND2 for Apple AirPlay 2 in December 2020, Spotify Connect now follows. This is probably of great interest to many users, because this service is also very widespread in high-end hi-fi circles, even if until now only lossy compressed content was available. With the market launch of Spotify HiFi later this year, the support of Spotify Connect as a basis will thus become even more essential.
