Keep in mind that some players (you didn't mention which device you'd be using for playback. PS4? Smart TV? Something else?) but not every device can play an mkv file with TrueHD audio.
Make sure whatever you're planning can do what you want. I have an nVidia Shield specifically to play 4k MKV files with Atmos. My 4k disc player (Panny 420) can access the network, but only play in stereo.
Also, consider a synology. They have a great OS. But I'd use it just for storage and not to run a Plex server. They can, but they aren't great at it.
