Digital stream to Xeo speakers

I'd like to use Spotify as the primary source for my Xeo wireless speakers.  There are plenty of wired solutions, but I'd like to do this wirelessly maintaining the digital stream at its highest bit rate and allowing control from e.g. a tablet. In the longer term it would be good to incorporate streaming of lossless material from a network drive.

I've looked at possible solutions but they seem to involve converting the digital stream to an analogue one, only for the Xeo hub to convert it back to digital for transmission to the speakers which seems a bit pointless and a weak point for good fidelity.

In my experience with low cost Bluetooth adaptors they suffer from drop-outs and may not be able to handle the bit rate.

Any suggestions welcome.

Thanks.
