the best way as mentioned would be a htpc, but if by all of the features you mean dts-hd, don't expect anything out of a htpc other than DD. they just recently found cheaper means of making the blue read lasers, i know that chinese companies are attempting to pick them up, so you may see 1.0 possibly 1.1 profile players for ~100 by the end of the summer. you won't see any brand name 1.1 players drop even close to that low for a while, unfortunately the expensive process beat the cheaper format, and now the consumer is forced to deal with the prices as attempts are made to cheapen the process to make these players (not even mentioning the price of the media).

HT: 360 -- Sony60A3000 -- Onkyo SR605 --> Polk cs2, monitor 60s and monitor 40s w/ Bic F12 sub -- PS3
XBL:Mr X3r0 -- PSN:Mr_X3r0

Rig- Asus P6X58D Premium - intel i7 920 @3.6 - EVGA GTX570 - Corsair HX1000 - Prolimatech Mega Shadow - WD640 - COOLER MASTER ATCS 840 - OCZ Gold 6GB DDR3 1600*
