You will get plenty of noise from the system output and on higher volumes the sound will be distorted.

Same response as for number 1
3. Do I need to suck up the cost and either buy the expensive amp, or buy a DSP and forget the HiFi coding?
DSP: waste of money in my opinion.
Hi-Fi coding: best bet for your money if you don't want DSP and want to start with clean base HU.
You do not need expensive amp (which accepts differential input). You would require something (LOC) which can convert differential signals into normal signals ---> Normal amp.
Wait for Mr. Singh to chime in and he may help you better TBH to find LOC which can convert differential balance signals to normal signals.
