Sorry if I have posted this in the wrong forum.....

I have just upgraded to spotify premium on my iPad/iPhone I use a Marantz Cd6004 and have it connected to its front USB port as it's solely designed for iPod/iPad, in effect using the marantz DAC

When I play music that is stored on my iPad/iPhone I have no problem, however when I stream from spotify or iplayer (for radio2) I repeatedly get dropouts and a USB comm error come up on CDP display, it's very Frustrating to the point where I may just cancel my spotify subscription. It can be playing fine for half an album then I can't get it working again? I give up and try the next day but it works for a while then cuts out with USB comm error.

I have tried different cables to no avail, and as music stored on my iPad/iPhone plays fine leads me to believe its a streaming problem?

Its not my wireless either as spotify plays perfect on my iMac.

Can anyone help? Thanks

Hi there

Sorry if I am being dense but are you using the iPad camera connector kit or doing this wirelessly with airport express or something?

I find my wireless on my Mac is a bit more reliable than that on my iPhone. Do you have a Premium subscription? If so, download an offline playlist and see if that improves things - if it does, then I'd say that does indeed point at a wireless problem.
