From my own experiences I can say: playing unmolested MLP (decoded by my AVR) sounds much better than decoded by XBMC and streamed as LPCM to the very same AVR. At least, this is true on my setup.
That's an interesting option Daniela! I used your build to try out some test files and all worked well with my Onkyo 875 receiver. I have ripped a number of my DVD-As as multi-channel LPCM but I hadn't really tried the raw MLP data (which my receiver will support). My only issue is that I use margro's PVR branch as I have a DVB-T tuner, so it's kind of messy to swap between versions. Do you know of any combined HD audio and PVR build in existence - it would be, as they say, "the icing on the cake"
