Guys I was wondering why no one talking about Xbox one s/x here? It has simple setup and plays Atmos and all that you can think of and also plays games :) . Stable and gets updates from Microsoft. Plays blue ray and has internal storage etc. you can install all common apps from Microsoft store . And come around 20k . Cheaper if u get from US or used one.

Here were are all are trying to put forth Rs.5K boxes...give or take a couple of thousands. Xbox is beyond the word “affordable” as it cost 3times more than the target price. Leaving price apart...x box is one hell of a box for it’s multi facet capabilities. Price is the only reason to leave Xbox or nvidia shield or minix U9-H or Himedia Q10pro behind.

I have x box S and it has its own limitations. It fixes one particular audio out for all formats and you have to change it everytime according to the file played. 3d setting is a pain too.

Does the Xbox support streaming apps as well as Kodi well?

I found one 2.3k price and if you are lucky with no custom charges - X96-W Android 7.1 TV Box 4K S905W

I think this should play 4k contents easily as per the reviews and based on the recommendations of @BOSS8055 to have the amlogic S905w processor.
Price is lucrative but 1gb RAM & 8gb ROM seem to be under powered. Also S905w is outdated compared to S905X2. Please consider these if 1080p with lossless audio (Dolby TrueHD/Atmos & DTS x / MasterHD) is desired. 4K needs much more beafed up specs.

I think I could set the Plex app on my NAS server not to transcode as I am able to play it directly on the C9 now without any lags or stuttering during playback over the LAN. So for the time being I am good with Plex running on my NAS and playing on the TV.

I hope you haven’t taken my naive question in an offence. The android tv boxes are a complex web & if you unknowingly miss out on a small feature leads to disappointment.

arre, no man. didnt get offended at all. was just asking for clarification on what exactly you meant by your question :)
