I cant speak for plex, but I have a kodi install running on a pi3. It gets its media over my home network from my freenas server. Performance is good, although I did have to tweak the buffer settings on the pi to get there. Getting it up and running with some linux experience should be a cakewalk for you.

The only caveats I can think of:
1) you probably won't be able to run a flashy skin...not enough hardware on the pi
2) I have had audio/video syncing issues with Bluetooth headphones. This really only seems to happen when I walk out of the room with them on though, so it's mostly user error
3) use the kodi app on a phone instead of a flaky usb remote
