Hi

It does not looks like we are going to get Spotify Connect for BS5 ;-(

However, does anyone know that the cheapest system is that I can get to have Spotify Connect?

I then want to attach the system to the USB interface of my BS5, so I dont need a Spotify Connect speaker.

Just like PM or Airport Express with audio out, just also including Spotify Connect.

Thanks.

So I had a look at the Behringer UCA222 (about $60 so not too bad). But I don't understand how you connect, say a Chromecast Audio to it... there appears to only be RCA audio inputs on the UCA222, so do I then need to use a headphone to RCA converter to attach a Chromecast Audio to the Behringer UCA222?

Has anyone setup up a workable Spotify Connect solution directly to BeoMaster 5? Keen to hear some specifics.

Many thanks in advance.

I have a Chromecast Audio connected to the UCA222.

I do also have Spotify Connect installed.

Both works fine for me.

A.AUX is used to activate either of them, however, if music is played on the installed Connect, the Connect music will continue if you switch to ie Radio (double input signals) unless you stop the Connect music first. That is not the case when using the Chromecast.

Thanks Beolion!

A few questions... How do you connect the Chromecast Audio to the UCA222?

And when using Chromecast do you get any cover art on the BS5 or just the A.AUX input text?

How do you connect the Chromecast Audio to the UCA222?: By using a 3.5mm MALE TO 2 RCA MALE AUDIO CABLE (check ebay)

When using Chromecast do you get any cover art on the BS5 or just the A.AUX input text? Yes, that is why I really like the BS5 player where you get the covers.

How can the BS5 know what's playing on the Chrome cast and show the cover arts if it is only connected with two RCA cables?

While Spotify is now working, I'm finding that N.Radio stations are no longer working. This is so frustrating. Is anyone else finding N.Radio stations to be unavailable?

I'm curious about adding the Chromecast dongle to my BeoSound 5. Provided that you have your BeoSound 5 source set to AUX, are you able to include the dongle in casting from WITHIN the BeoX App, BeoMusic App, or BeoLink 2 App? I know that adding an NL converter would be the ideal solution, but the ability to include the dongle in chrome casting from within a B&O app would be a nice workaround (provided that one has at least one NL multi-room product).
