I don't keep up with the hardware but just playing 1080 content to a 1080 screen is not very demanding. I would try your current setup first and see what you think.

The converter doesn't care that DD+ is lossy. It just converts.

You can convert mp3 to flac or wav if you want. There is no sound quality benefit. But if the original format is causing problems...
