Original Xiaomi Mi Android TV Bar TV Box Audio Receiver

Original Xiaomi Mi TV Bar TV Box Audio Receiver Overview

Xiaomi Mi TV Bar TV BoxSo this is the Original Xiaomi Mi Android TV Bar TV Box Audio Receiver, and I must say that it is truly a new way to view media. This TV bar/ TV box can work with any TV with HDMI input, or even a VGA input.  Actually this TV bar is part of Xioami’s new modular TV design where they allow customers the convenience of upgrading their TV’s hardware without having to change the screen. What this means is that the 4K display that you get from Xiaomi only acts as part of the TV (the most expensive too), this screen may not need to be changed for some years, while the electronics hardware board will need to be changed as Android versions and new CPU’s and RAM get faster and better 4K technologies. But why buy a whole TV for thousands when you can just change the electronics module. So the MI TV bar is that module, and the screen simply acts as a big 4K monitor, no speakers or volume buttons, everything is in the bar.

For a 4K TV to play 4K content in these modern times, it must be designed with hardware that has the ability to stream live 4K feeds, and also play 4K content from external devices. So Xiaomi decided to use the  Mstar 6A928 cortex A17 quad core CPU, running up to 1.4 GHz. This CPU, is one of the first 4K processors used in 4K televisions, with super powerful audio and video playback capabilities. This CPU has support for 4K video display at 60 fps.

So if the Xiaomi Mi TV bar is to act as a main TV module then it has to have an awesome sound system with multiple input sources. I will list the inputs below, but let me speak a bit about the sound itself. The Xiaomi Mi TV bar and TV box combo, also features HiFi stereo sound audio receiver capability. The sound bar itself comes with 4 wide band speakers of 2.5 inches each, with independent acoustic chambers and two dome tweeters. These tweeters are placed in a forward position facing the user, and they are spread widely as possible to deliver a sound quality that will surprise most users. There is also the option to connect a sub-woofer, for heavier bass and a better cinematic type experience.
