What is the CHEAPEST option for 4k hevc playback?

So what hardware is capable of playing that? If this is current "endgame" then I am willing to pay more for that. Is the Vero 4K+ the best option? Or the Minix U9?

Thank you both so much everyone for the very quick, patient, and helpful replies.

Plug n Play = Vero 4K+ it's a nicely polished performer for SDR / 4K HDR Kodi.

Cheapest DIY then it's the Gigabit $60 Tanix TX9 found in THIS post (click)

I find the Apple TV 4K has the best 4K HDR > SDR color mapping vs the AMLogic chipset media players. I think this is highly dependent on a users TV tho. Ultimately you need a HDR display.

No Kodi capable media player can playback DolbyVision 4K Bluray Rips.

The Apple TV 4K can stream DV iTunes, Netflix & VUDU, and the FireTV Stick 4K can stream DV Netflix content. (Maybe VUDU)
