v17 DTS music playback from WavPack (.wv) files
#30
How did I create the .wv files: I had those tracks as .waw and simply converted them with dBpoweramp into .wv. The only reason for doing this was to be able to tag them properly with Mp3tag, like the other .flac and (some) .mp3 music files I have, and have them included in the music library.

Playback: I have always controlled the volume on the AVR, never used the Kodi volume controls (always at full volume). And have always used WASAPI as output device, with Output Configuration set to "Best match" (have also HiRes .flac files). The AVR is set to Pure Direct input (always, irrespective of the kind of file I'm playing) so, I believe, Soli is right when saying that it recognizes the DTS stream and decodes it accordingly. Out of curiosity I tried changing the volume in Kodi (what fritsch suggested) and the sound did indeed stop. I did not hear any noise, though, was just silent. Interestingly, pressing the "+" button (max volume again) the sound came back and was normal (multi-channel), probably because at max volume there's no internal processing involved.

Here are the first 3 tracks of Aero:
