START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated August 2020)

Do you guys have any opinion regarding the COOD-E TV 4K player?

Heres what they say on the homepage:
"Powered by the latest technology from AMLOGIC, the S912 Octa Core chipset gives the COOD-E TV 4K an astonishing performance. Enjoy super smooth playback of 4K Ultra HD videos at 60 frames with support for HDR 10 bit and listen to crystal clear HD Audio.

Does this seem like a proper media player? Im after a box able to play 4K HDR (converted to 1080p SDR) over network with proper audio passthrough for all surround formats. I also use Netflix wich this box seem to support.

I first tried Xbox One S as a complete media centre but the lack of audio passthrough and automatic audio switching leaves it lacking. So to me it doesnt matter if Kodi is working or not since xbox doesnt allow passthorugh (ie no Atmos etc)
Very good for 4K bluray now since the latest update. Really good HDR to SDR conversion as far as I can tell. Plays 4K movies over network using the Xbox Film&TV app but there is no way of knowing if the sound is getting through OK. Also it lack support for many codecs.
