Anything besides an AV-Receiver has too many limitations. If you don't go with that you have to live with too many restrictions anyway. Your choice.The only way you get full "use" of that is if you send that to a sound system that understands it and can play it as is. Which typically in my experience would be a capable audio receiver that is using most or all of the channels the stream provides. If you just send that to something that does not understand it, transcodes it itself or cannot play it through 6 or 7 channels then you have not accomplished anything in my opinion.
