START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
This is a very helpful thread, thanks to all who have provided info and esp wrxtasy.

Simple qn - between the Chromebox and Shield is there a speed difference, esp when dealing with large media libraries. I am considering these 2 as I need HD audio and these are the 2 solutions most recommended. As I see it, Shield offers a bit more - access to Android apps, Android Tv UI, Netflix etc, but Chromecast is a proven player and perhaps x86 has less issues with addons? I also don't have a 4K tv so 4K content is not an issue, but HEVC on Shield would be a plus.

But my main concern would be speed and future prospects since it seems Kodi on Android is in danger and Koying/SPMC is a one man effort.
