In the beginning my Yamaha receiver was compatible with Spotify streaming. Then they forced a firmware update and it was compatible only if you have a paid account. Then they reverted this decision and streaming works with the free version again... except now two firmware updates later my Yamaha is not on the supported devices list. Well played, Spotify.
