No doubt, as already widely discussed (in various articles), AmLogic lately due to the excellent compatibility, performance, was among the producers of SoCs for TV boxes/Android mini PC one of the most appreciated by users. In fact, lately we had often to analyze TV boxes based on the Chipset of the famous Asian.
Asian House after the great success of SoC AmLogic S905, upgrading (great) AmLogic S905X, launched for a few month the new AmLogic S912.
Amlogic S912 that promises to be for the time being the true market reference. In fact, we remind users the success and longevity of Smart (also used for the now famous MiniX Neo X 8-H), the first chipset to offer decode at 4 k, great speed and very high compatibility.
That said, today we want to present a new TV Box based on this new House chipset AmLogic:
YOKA KB2 TV Boxes … the Box with CPU amLogic S912!!!
A Box from the classical form, like so many others … but with great features and most importantly, as we shall see, with very, very interesting.
With excellent technical characteristics, uses the new Amlogic S912 with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB eMMC well storage, Wi-Fi, Dual band, AV RCA output, and more.
as already mentioned, with the new AmLogic S912, introduces a number of new features all linked to Video decoding and image quality. These updates "architecture" (Octa-Core CPU) do make a real leap forward video playback quality and performance.
So at least in the introduction, a good box, among other things based on the new Android OS 6.0 Marshmallow.

Last very important note is that relating to the compatibility with KODI (XBMC), which is preinstalled on Krypton 17-beta version and fully compatible with all video formats (including the latest). We believe that, given the experiences with the full compatibility and now AmLogic Kodi Asian home CPUs.
Conclusions and price
Ultimately one of the best TV boxes (for instance also features slightly higher than those of Beelink GT1). With a classic fit looks aesthetically good, with a good Assembly, and with greater glow (Blue when illuminated-red when in standby). In detail, we have good blocking CPU-GPU-RAM. The qualities of the new CPU AmLogic S912 are undisputed and for us a guarantee, either for playing movies (also in 4 k and H265/HEV-C) and for use in other areas (apps, games etc). Also we should have a very good compatibility with Kodi, guaranteed by the Platform Builder who preinstalls onto your box in version 17.
Internal memory (store) is an impressive 32 GB eMMC (30 GB free to ignition). The Networking industry is of a high standard with RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet and Dual Band 802.11 WiFi ac. Also the external antenna, that maybe you might not like aesthetically, ensures better performance in signal reception.
Perhaps the only "in" (where in you can talk) to this box are: the lack of a USB 3.0 and remote control a bit cumbersome.
Last positive note is the price, in fact, this box is sold (market price) of 80/90 Euro (but we report an offer about 56.65 Euros).
As already mentioned in other articles we can, through a partnership with Gearbest, offer for users of XBMC-Italy information about promotions and discounts currently anticipated.
