So this means that the Pi 3 doesn't support HD Audio passthrough?

no it doesn't. The pi3 is the same as the pi2 just with faster clock rates, a 64bit cpu and built in wifi/bluetooth. The GPU (video core IV) is the same as all the rest of the Pi's. It will decode HDAudio to lossless PCM (same as PS4); PCM is a perfect bit match to pass through HD. You just won't see the HD Audio light turn on in your receiver.

And - to be fair - you won't get Dolby Atmos or DTS:x content played in that format. You will also not be able to play the handful of 5.1/7.1 192kHz releases losslessly as the Pi tops out at 4.0 at 192kHz. Within those constraints - which or many of us are non-issues - it's a great solution.
