Default Audio Streamer for 24/192 or 24/96 options

Hi all.
I am in need of an audio/video streamer that can output Hi-Res audio via Optical or Coaxial.
Basically what I want to do is put it inside a case of a Teac PD-H500 CD player. I bought the amp and two cd players, one of them faulty. Thats not a problem as it was only 20 pounds. I also bought the Teac UD-H01 DAC and looking to play some Hi-Res files but not throu a PC.

What I would need is a streamer about 200x200 size and no more then 100mm high to fit in that case, with the remote sensor on the lower side so it works throu the original display window.
Also would be good if it had some storage area or capable of connecting external HDD/pen drive/SD card/whatnot....

IMPORTANT: if its a media streamer capable of outputing these formats, the optical and HDMI out have to work simultaneously and also not require me to connect a tv (could mount a 5 inch screen on the front of the case)

thanks for suggestions

Danny

Nobody with experience with media/audio streamers? Do they work with Hi-Res out over Toslink?

Look into the Raspberry Pi and any number of projects here for something suitable. Toslink sucks..

I am not sure if raspberry will be able to handle high bitrate hd movies. it might suck, but majority of the players have only optical, hdmi and sometimes component and video out. thats it what I could find out.
I need video out for the front screen, hdmi for tv connection and optical (coaxial) for hi-res music

It was intended to support 1080P and has a DVI format HDMI output. I would check it some of the threads here. There are a number of dac boards designed to interface directly with its I2S output and I believe that someone is working on a spdif output as well. (Actually there are piles of hardware intended to interface with the Pi, just need to look for it) It has GPIO as well for controlling stuff like simple displays.

I read a lot that its good but has one major drawback....its slow.thars what the others report.

Does anybody know if media players output through HDMI and optical/coaxial/composite video at the same time? or does the output turn its self off once some other is connected?
this way I could run the front screen from Comp video and output from S/PDIF to DAC and when desired the HDMI to a tv....

Mac Mini? Has become my media server of choice.

The Appel Airport Express are great but capped at 48Hz. I read apple are prepping a hi-res itunes and hi-res lightening cabled headphones, perhaps the next apple tv will up the bitrate and be a good contender.
