Playing HD audio without receiver

Continuing from a different thread, a pretty straight forward question - is there an option at the moment for playing HD audio close to original quality without using passthrough to a receiver?
That is, decoding to PCM on the shield and passing uncompressed multi-channel audio to a speaker connected via HDMI, without transcoding to AAC or anything like it.
I realize this may not be the correct forum, but it is a shield-related question, shield being a server-client combo.
Thanks, Adam.

    No this is not possible currently unless you use Plex for Kodi where it can decode audio as LPCM. (Plex Pass only)
