Especially if you like Spotify. Is Sonos worried? Nope. They are THE leaders in wireless

Speakers and streaming right now and although they are very aware of NAD and all other streaming hardware makers they are competing with.

Sure. But they can't sue Spotify. Spotify Connect is a game changer...because it puts multiroom streaming right onto the device.. Without a Sonos ZP.. And control *outside* the Sonos GUI.... If some of the other services like Pandora or even the HiRez services do a similar "connect" ...then what's stopping someone just writing an app and pulling all the control right from the iphone/ipad...?? Sonos wouldn't be needed *and* you could do Hirez where you wanted...

Does Spotify Connect have the devices talk to one another for sync?

Because sync is the thing that is difficult to do well with multi-room playback, and I've only seen Sonos/AirPlay get this right.

Thing is Bluesound is owned by the same crowd that owns NAD. Bluesound will do Spotify connect native. So that will sync. They are also putting Bluesound cards into some NAD AVR's and receivers... All controlled by the Bluesound app... I assume when a Bluesound enabled NAD receiver is thrown a stream via connect... It just switches on correct input and plays??? Don't know. But this is Exciting stuff for 24 bit multiroom playback!

I've been enjoying Spotify connect with my Pioneer receiver. Works really well.

Does this automatically switch on and select the right input when Spotify connect throws it a tune?
