You can get HD quality (that is CD quality not hi-res UHD) by using Airplay from the app on an iOS device. I ended up plugging an iPad into my DAC via USB to get hi-res music.Can I stream Amazon music HD to my yamaha rn803d from the Amazon app and get hi Res HD track quality? As it doesn't show Amazon on my music cast app
No the Amazon Music app only recognises casting to Echo devices in addition to Airplay.It's odd, because the Yamaha 485 A/V receiver shows the amazon music icon in MusicCast.
But, Spotify icon in MusicCast (for RN803D) is just a shortcut for the Spotify music app from your phone. And having the premium account on Spotify app will let you stream the music to the 803D.
Considering that, maybe it is possible to use the Amazon Music app on your phone and select the output to 803D instead phone speaker (something similar to airplay)?
Yes the 803 D has Spotify Connect built in so it streams direct to the amp from Spotify servers. If only there were an ‘Amazon Music Connect’! That would be cool…..🤞And I think I'm wrong with my theory, because when I click on Spotify icon on MusicCast it says that it will run the Spotify app from the phone and the app will run as a remote control only! I think that the 803D it has the Spotify installed and that's why the Spotify app is working as a remote only. And all the decoding of digital file is done by the 803D, not by the phone.
I apologies for the mistake and wrong analogy for Amazon Music.
