Recommendations for SSA/_ASS subtitle support?

After searching through a few threads, it seems that I’m not the only one disappointed by WD’s claims to support SSA and _ASS subtitles while completely ignoring such pretty basic issues as positioning, styles and concurrent subtitles.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a media player that actually supports SSA/_ASS subtitles, to replace my WD TV Live for anime-watching?

I’ve read positive comments about the D-Link Boxee Box and SSA subs.

Some of the Syabas Popcorn Hour players do a much better job than the WD players.

And any HTPC / XBMC setup will get them right.

I’ve tried the Boxee Box and though I love XBMC, I couldn’t stand the fan noise.
