START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
Having trouble finding the right box for me.

Here is my current situation:
A Dune Base 3.0 player, with a Mediasonic 4 bay enclosure. I have 4 drives attached to it already. I may need a 5th soon
The Dune Base 3 Player can:
- Bitstream both HD audio formats
- Allow 4+ hard drives connected at once, even with USB hubs
- Has a NAS-like function (all 4 hard drives appear on the network)

Here are my requirements for a new player:
- HD audio bitstreaminng, both DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD
- Must be able to connect 4+ external hard drives, AND have them appear on the network. (I don't have a "Proper" NAS)
- Harmony Remote compatible.
- No need for Netflix, Plex, 3D.
- I also don't want a box which I have to take it apart and unscrew stuff and risk voiding the warranty. I also have no interest in mini-boards like the Pi or Odroid. I want a simple plug-and-play kind of thing.

I have no 'spare' computer lying around. The one I'm using is a 27" iMac from 2010. So that's out of the question.

Any ideas? I can't seem to find a player on the first page of this forum that supports the NAS-like function as my Dune Base 3.0 that I have right now.
