Nice setup, but the Whodini album makes it even better! 5 Minutes of Funk must sound awesome on it.

I run Kodi on the Firestick and SPMC on the Shield TV. The Firestick is good, especially for the price. There is more hassle to getting Kodi up and running on it, but once it's there it works well.

I think it's the fact that SPMC is done by Koying, who is the guy responsible for developing Kodi's Android version in the first place. It seems he and the Kodi group had a falling out and he has...

SPMC does a great job of playing back mkv's w/ HD audio and frame rate switching. I don't think I have ever seen the Netflix app switch to 24hz though.

Vudu is not yet available on Android TV and thus is not on the Shield TV. It can be sideloaded, but you would need a mouse to select everything.

You can order them on Amazon. Logitech Z-2300. I don't know of any other speakers that use the phase plug design though.

I still use my Z-2300's. Damn good PC speakers for the money.
