I assume that you want to buy nVidia shield. I would suggest you to get nVidia shield pro 2019 as it comes with 2 usb ports for your requirement. As for Video it offers very good upscaling to 4K not sure about the upscaling on audio(as you mentioned in your title). You will not need your Blu Ray player for playing from USB anymore. Additionally you can passthrough high quality lossless tracks from movies to your AVR which for sure will enhance your movie experience.

- nVidia shield is not available officially in India, better buy it from Australia if any one you know can carry it for you.

- You can buy through amazon.com (US website) , which ships from USA( shipping + import duty extra) and you will end up paying double the cost.

So the choice is yours.

USB port in AVR will support only audio files, none of the AVR I know has video play support. What model of Marantz do you have?
If Nvidia shield looks costly, what is the budget you are looking at?

This is still beyond his budget. @Marinerme sadly none of the mainstream products would fit your requirement. Do have a look at other media player options..

I did a quick search found that new nVidia shield pro (2019) is not available in online stores. If you are ok with the previous version of nVidia shield it is still available for slighly lower price(aus - $249), which works out to 12500.

yes of course, u can connect to avr via HDMI,WIRELESS U CAN share it on tv via miracast. Pen drive,hard drive can directly can be connected to usb drive of media player.can share ur content via airplay,miracast ,dlna etc.it is good for music also but may not work like himedia player.
I am using himedia player , u can opt for lower version of himedia player
