Why does spotify sound different using sky q app


Novice Member
So I have spotify premium on my phone samsumg s10 I have sky Q and I used the spotify app on sky q thinking I would get much better sound as it's all hard wired using my phone I use Bluetooth or heos
But using the sky q spotify app my music has much less bass and sounds tinny through my phone its warm with bass I was hoping someone would be able to let me know why
Also whilst on the subject what do you think is the best way to play my music I have a denon 3600h and q acoustics 2050i I know there are many ways to play but is there one I'm missing I also can use a stand alone high end tablet so if this was hard wired in which would be the best way
Thanks for any help you pro's can give me

Connect the Sky Q HDMI or optical out to your amp/speakers and listen to the Spotify app via that rather than through an app on your phone which, of course, is going to sound tinny by comparison.

The problem is the other way round it sounds great from phone to amp but using the sky q app sounds tinny and can't figure out why
