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

They want to use netflix, with several profiles. Their previous box (a western digital thing, I don't remember) couldn't switch profiles at all.
They regularly use USB keys for movies and such.
Their TV is 1080p and has no audio out (ridiculous) and they want to use their Bose sound bar thing.
Their budget is under 75 USD.
Has to be easy to use but can be harder to set up since I'll be helping them with that.

There are so many options, I'm just getting lost!

Thanks in advance.

What audio inputs does the Bose sound bar accept? Optical and/or analog stereo? The audio out seems to be the tricky part as there are very few devices that have optical out, run Kodi, and have a native Netflix app. You might have to go with a FireTV or Xiaomi Mi box and a HDMI audio extractor like this:
