Dear FMs,
Since my Raspberry Pi stopped working, I am looking for a similar, more reliable alternatives where I can play movies on Kodi (from NAS) with HDMI out to my TV, and music with digital out (coaxial/USB) to my dac+preamp. I dont want a large footprint OS and more power consuming media player in the chain.
What are the best options suitable for my requirements?

Not really. You only need a celeron which costs less than 10k for the nuc itself, + some other bits which could even be repurposed from an old.laptop

Android media players cost anywhere between 1.5k to 10k depending on what features you want. Kodi works great on those.

Here are a few:

These will work out cheaper if you import them from China.

Android TV Box would be best.. Not aware of its NAS capabilities.. But will get you flexibility w.r.t connectivity.. HDMI, co-axial/Optical, USB..

There are some models aval on amazon.in bet 3 - 7K INR..
