I just started using plex media server. and i love it. I am currently using a roku 3. though I am looking for a player that supports more direct play options. specially for audio. I'm trying to bring the taxation on my cpu down. most of my files are 1080p MKV x264. with dts audio or 5.1. I currently have no reciver hooked up to the tv. I was looking at the samsung bluray players. just any guidance would be helpful.

Simple answer is if you want to stream media -get a media streamer. A BD player, or TV for that matter is not a media streamer. Look at Dune, Wd and others.

You can build one such as a Raspberry Pi or a HTPC and use is as a Plex client. Other media players such as the Sony GS7 / GS8 has a Plex app.
