If you use an Android device or iOS then you can use airplay to your PC via shairport4w. To my understanding that gets you lossless on Windows as it's Airplay 1. That's what I currently use.
My patience for an improved Windows app with Lossless & Spatial has went away and so I took very desperate measures.

Shairport4w does this (audio only with Lossless & Spatial), and its free & open source (meaning you don’t have to mess with AirServer’s finicky trial system).

I know this is a workaround, but you can download and run Shairport4w on your windows machine, and AirPlay to it from your iDevice as Airplay is lossless.
