Kodi is changing pulse sink by using sync playback to display

Pulseaudio will (without a lot of tuning) exactly do what you don't want. It will resample most stuff in software, while you exactly bought the DAC for exactly this, e.g. outputting the data and letting the DAC convert it to analog. If you bought the DAC to use its spdif - you bought it for the wrong purpose.

Depending on your pulseaudio version, you can set it to 24 bits by default, set 44.1 khz as your default sample rate and 48 khz as your alternate samplerate and additionally enable the setting: avoid-resampling - that way pulseaudio will behave as good as it can for every sort of content - else it will just resample all content, reducing bit-depth and so on.

Hint: As you did not hear it, it's most likely not a problem for you.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
