    Best answer: Synology DS218+ can stream 4K media to compatible devices, so long as you don't need to transcode.
    Amazon: Synology DS218+ ($250)
    Capable of decoding 4K media

    It's important to get the differences between decoding and transcoding out the way first. The former is the decoding of media for playback. The latter is far more intensive since it requires the host device (in this case the Synology DS218+) to not only decode the media file, but also convert it to another format and then stream it if the destination doesn't support the original file format.
