When I wrote about the official launch of MINIX NEO U22-XJ media hub yesterday, I mentioned it was the first Amlogic S922XJ that I knew of and the first Amlogic TV box to support Dolby Vision and Dolby Audio.
But it was rightly pointed out to me that Amazon Fire TV Cube TV box already supported Dolby Vision with Amlogic S922Z processor that looks to be about the same as Amlogic S922XJ. Ugoos is now offering another Dolby Vision/Audio option with an upgrade to their existing Ugoos AM6 TV box replacing Amlogic S922X processor with S922X-J and increasing the memory and storage capacity.

Ugoos AM6 Plus runs Android 9.0 operating system with Google Play. The firmware appears to be shared with the one for AM6 TV box, so apart from the higher CPU frequency (2.2 GHz vs 1.8 GHz) and Dolby Vision & Dolby Audio support, the user experience will be similar.
Ugoos AM6 Plus can be purchased for $147.70 on Aliexpress with a standard IR remote control and power supply, but there are also bundles with an air mouse or a wireless keyboard. It should be noted that while Amlogic S922X-J supports Dolby Vision and Dolby Audio, Ugoos does not mention either on Aliexpress nor the product page.
