I’m having the same problem. Using the Elac connected trough the digital output to a dac. I would off course like to leave it that way and listen to Spotify. The problem is a known problem. So, while thanking you for your aswer i’d like to know if Elac will be doing anything to repair this?
This feature (Spotify Connect in SPDIF zone) is very much needed and currently it is a show-stopper for me.
It’s pity since the Discovery has a very good sounding SPDIF output and the best SW for playing music files.
Doesn’t make any sense that supposedly Discovery Connect has Spotify connect through toslink but Discovery Server would not have. I hope you can give Discovery an update to Spotify connect because pretty much any streamer today has that feature.
