Default Equalizer APO and Wi-Fi streaming

I use a laptop as my audio source, playing through Equalizer APO then Bluetooth to amplifier.

1. I'm considering Wi-Fi streaming, using a Chromecast/Audiocast device and the inbuilt DLNA server in Windows 10. Can Equalizer APO be applied to Wi-Fi streaming/does the Chromecast appear as an audio device in Windows 10 to which EQ APO can be applied?

2. Is Wi-Fi streaming that much superior to Bluetooth aptX or will I not notice the difference? I don't have high end components but I've got a pretty good ear.

Just a bump on this to see if I can get some assistance. I don't have a Chromecast/Audiocast and I'm reluctant to buy one if Equalizer APO cant't be used with it.

Anyone here with a Chromecast/Audiocast and EQ APO who could give it a bash?

Afaik with DLNA and similar streaming services playback is done on the client device. This means E-APO and similar stuff won't work unfortunately.

Possibly it can be done (I'm not sure). You'd have to convert from source (compressed?) format to .WAV say at 16bit, 44.1KHz and throw that at the Chromecast. Some tinkering with the stream could be done before leaving the laptop.

Thanks for the answers - looks like I'll have to stick with Bluetooth since I don't want to be without EQ APO, unless I can find a comparable system-wide EQ.
