Roger said: If you need an inexpensive media player to play hi-def video files, the WD TV Live is a good choice. If you’re looking for something to play audio files through a high-end system, I suggest you look elsewhere.

Read the SoundStage! Xperience review.

The gist: Good and cheap for video. No for audio.
