You start by stating that your PC is essential. Have you considered that? Are there options to move your convolution and crossover requirements into a hardware solution - miniDSP, pro gear or even a dedicated mini PC?

MiniDSP and pro gear = IIR. Not enough FIR taps.

Dedicated Mini PC = how do you get HDMI input or optical input into the PC? And what OS? Linux and Mac are out. Hell will freeze over before I buy an Apple product, and I don't feel like spending heaps of time learning to use Linux just to get it to do one thing. So that leaves Windows. And ... I already own a Windows PC.

At this point you should just stream using the browser app for Idagio on your desktop and be done. :D

...You could also get a Raspberry Pi 4 (or5) and buy a Digi Pro hat (or one of these from the EU) with optical out for about $55 USD, install RoPieee, then set it up as DLNA renderer. Then use an app on your phone that routes any audio from the device to the Raspberry Pi (connected to ethernet) via DLNA which then outputs optical to your RME soundcard. You can set up JRiver to do Wasapi loopback so all audio is routed through JRiver without having to set up ASIO Input.

Put JRiver in loopback mode by going to File > Open URL and enter live://loopback [or open live, WASAPI Loopback]

RoPieee also supports Squeezelite stuff https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeezelite
