Rockchip RK3528 Android 13 TV Box doubles as a Bluetooth speaker

The H96 Max M7 is a Rockchip RK3528 TV box running Android 13.0 that mostly differentiates itself from competitors with the integration of two speakers allowing the box to be used as a Bluetooth speaker.

The rest of the specifications are pretty standard with up to 4GB RAM, 32GB storage, 4Kp60 HDMI video output, video playback up to 4K at 60 fps or 8K at 23 fps, WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity, and a single USB port for extension.

Rockchip RK3528 8K TV Box Speakers

The TV box runs Android 13.0 with the Google Play store and supports OTA firmware upgrades, but it’s unclear whether it’s running Android TV or the standard Android OS for mobile devices. The H96 Max M7 ships with an HDMI cable, an IR remote control, a power adapter, and a user manual.

We previously wrote about TV boxes with built-in speakers such as the MECOOL HomePlus, SEI 520, and MXQ HF10, but those doubled as smart speakers while the H96 Max M7 is simply an Android TV box with stereo speakers.

We first found the H96 Max M7 on Bangood where it is sold for $59.99 in 2GB/16GB configuration or $64.99 with 4GB RAM and 32GB flash, but you’ll also find it on Aliexpress for $34.94 and up including shipping.

Would be much more useful if power was via USB PD and/or was battery powered.
