I've tried it with BBC I-Player radio streamed to a Technics Ottava renderer and it works correctly. There is some control over the quality of stream too. I don't know if you can find anything similar for Raspberry Pi running Linux though.

Thanks for your interest and the link. I had come across SWYH and thought about testing it on a virtual Windows machine, but decided that also would involve too much hassle in the long term, so continued my search for a native linux solution. Over the Christmas/new year period I discovered there is a solution: pulseaudio-dlna. (http://www.webupd8.org/2016/03/how-to-st...st-or.html) This is now installed on my Manjaro desktop (the RPi runs Volumio as a renderer and I don't want to change that) and works well. I recommend it.
