I'm looking for a media streamer that will play 24/96 5.1 and 24/192 FLAC files without downsampling them. I'd like the box to also play mkv and other file types, but the primary use would be for 5.1 FLAC. I have a WDTV Live Plus, WDTV Live Streaming and Roku 2 XS, but none of those fits the requirement. I don't want to spend more than $125. What do you guys recommend?

The NeoTV 550 was the only player I could find that handled music well. But like Slosh implied, they are hard to find now. I bought mine for $80 about a year ago.

Thanks all. I'll check the Netgear one out. Are any of the Realtek 1186 boxes (Micca, kdlinks etc.) good for this?
