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

A LibreELEC 7.0.0 Kodi Karvis 16.1 release for the ATV1 has been done by a fellow LE developer @chewitt and is found by clicking HERE

I don't think you need anything restricted to a Mac driven Kodi box and there are now Plug n Play devices like the nVIDIA Shield that work out of the box.
Even with LibreELEC devices like the ODROID C2, its simply a matter of Flashing a mSD or eMMC, plug it it and you are good to go.

What does work pretty seamlessly with a Mac is any LibreELEC device. Any SMB connected hard drives your Kodi box has attached, show up in a Mac's OSX finder (in the sidebar). You can drag and drop files easily then.

What you neglect to tell us is what Audio and Video requirements are needed. Eg 24p video playback, HD Audio passthrough, HEVC (H265) hardware decoding etc. This is far more important than picking hardware at this early stage.
