If you need Gigabit Ethernet, guaranteed working Dual Band 2.4/5GHz b/g/n WiFi / Bluetooth, SPDIF and an optional inbuilt working TV Tuner get the S905 WeTek Play2 for LibreELEC.

If you need 100M Ethernet & HDR & VP9 Profile 2 support get the AML S905X MECOOL for LibreELEC. WiFi does not work with the MECOOL with LibreELEC. It's poor 2.4Ghz WiFi only anyway when using Android. The MECOOL should really be considered an Ethernet only box.

For working Bluetooth with LibreELEC you need to add a cheap v4.0 CSR BT USB dongle to the MECOOL.

If you need a AML S905X LibreELEC box with guaranteed working Dual Band b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth look at the Khadas Vim devices.
The S905X 2GB/16GB Vim Pro has top spec AC WiFi.

There are further guaranteed working AC WiFi options in this post:

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

Pick which features are most important to you in any media player and work from there.
Suggestion is to make a list & include a budget.
