START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
Ultimately what you want is a box that can hardware decode - properly encoded 10bit HEVC video content AND also output that video as 10bit to a capable 10bit display.

What we are talking about here is color bit depth and color gradients - to reduce visibly color banding on a TV.

More info on Color gradient here

If you do not have a 10bit display panel, better picture quality can be achieved by dithering 10bit HEVC down to 8bit and outputting that.
If you want to do some reading about such recent LibreELEC testing see this:

[TESTING][S905(X)] 10bit/HDR/Dithering Test Builds & Discussion

Basically a good place to start would be a 4K 10bit HEVC capable media player.
