START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)

I don't see any non-movie specific HD Audio support/test.
DSD/DFF
SACD multi channel ISO support
DVDA multi channel ISO support
Bit perfect output for 44.1, 88.2, 96, 176.4, 192 KHz sampling rates. I think for SACD 88.2 is important.
Gapless playback.
Software players for music?

Which hardware support the above sampling rates (in full)?
Which android software can play the above formats? Maybe convert SACD/DVDA to lossless HD multi channel LPCM or bitstream.

Most boxes that support PCM Multichannel output over HDMI will support all sample rates up to 192kHz over HDMI - though the Pi series are limited to 4.0 at 192kHz - and I guess 176.4 - (they are 7.1 capable for 96kHz and below)

Intel x86 boxes of most recent flavours (including those without HD Audio bit streaming like some Braswell, Bay Trail, Cherry Trail etc.) will also support PCM at most bitrates and bit depths.

Don't know of any Kodi boxes with native DSD/DFF bit streaming (though I've not investigated thoroughly) - though Kodi does - I think - include transcoding to PCM.
