I have a 5.1 surround sound system I want to get the best out of. I want a really top all round box ( Fast , stable, reliable . Non if any buffeting and prepared to pay for quality)that I will be able to update and not be in this position again. The one issue is how & where I buy this box in the UK after legal rulings earlier this year. I also have an ultra HD TV that I can enjoy the best that a good box has to offer.
Your M8 very likely has a AMLogic Chipset in it that is still very capable. You can run LibreELEC Kodi Krypton from a microSDHC card on it.

Find out which chipset you have and visit the AMLogic LibreELEC forum

This post lists the no nonsense mainly Kodi only boxes, that are optimised for (non-HDR) 1080p/4K Kodi use:

AMLogic S905(x) - LibreELEC / OSMC - Kodi Krypton - 4K Options
