1 day Min D9 outside the ornamental analysis back to the top
I believe that friends who know about tablets know that Rockchip has a chip called RK3288 with quite powerful performance, game performance and video decoding performance have been recognized by the industry. Many people hope that this chip can be transplanted to the box so that the box can decode larger bitrate or even higher resolution video, and now, Tianmin Technology has officially launched this high-definition box based on this chipset – Tianmin D9. In addition to using RK3288 chip, this product is also equipped with 2G large-capacity memory, making the box have a smoother experience. As for the overall performance of this product? Let’s take a look at the reviews of this product.

Briefly introduce the hardware configuration of the Tianmin D9, in addition to the CPU with quad-core A17 architecture and the GPU with 16-core architecture, it is also equipped with 2G ultra-large memory and 16G ROM, supporting dual-band WIFI and gigabit network cards; The most surprising thing is that Tianmin D9 adopts HDMI 2.0 interface, supports 4K/60 frame output, and truly 4K output, providing an excellent hardware foundation for 4K film and television experience (there are still many boxes on the market that support 4K decoding but only 1080P output).
Tianmin D9 external ornamental analysis
To be honest, the appearance design of Tianmin D9 gives the author a refreshing feeling, you must know that Tianmin’s previous product design is conservative and old-fashioned, and fashion is completely incompatible. The design of this product has been significantly improved, the combination of white face and blue background is very small and fresh, and the texture of this abrasive is also better than the previous product, without any cheap taste, the overall is much more high-end.
2. Regular video playback test back to the top
Local video playback test
Local media playback is the most basic and undoubtedly the most guaranteed function as a high-definition player, and its support and playback quality of local media files often reflect how high the performance of the box is. Today, Xiaobian uses HDMI video output, 1T USB3.0 mobile video disk input, and 10M wireless network connection to test Tianmin D9.
The first video file tested, in terms of movie playback, its decoding method is also valued by consumers. The types of formats supported by Tianmin D9 cover the current popular formats, including MKV, TS, M2TS, MTS, TP, TPR, WMV, VOB, DAT, AVI, MPG, MP4, MOV, RM, RMVB, etc.
Many of the following video formats are the mainstream media formats RMVB, MKV, and HD enthusiasts’ favorite TS format, etc., this format of video can best reflect the playback speed and playback quality of a high-definition player.

In all the above video tests, all of the Tianmin D9 can be smoothly decoded and there is no pressure to fast forward and rewind, and the overall experience is very good. It can be seen that the effect of high-performance chips is still very shocking.
3H.265 video playback test back to top
H.265 video decoding test
H.265 is a new video coding standard developed by ITU-T VCEG after H.264. The H.265 standard revolves around the existing video coding standard H.264, retaining some of the original technologies while improving some related technologies. The new technology uses advanced techniques to improve the relationship between bit stream, encoding quality, latency, and algorithm complexity to achieve optimal settings. Here we also test Tianmin D9 with videos of different resolutions and bitrates.

In the H265’s encoded video test, D9 support is also perfect, and all resolutions can be played smoothly.
4 Local picture playback test back to the top
Local picture playback test
As a multimedia playback tool, the ability to play pictures is also indispensable for HD players. The image formats tested in this test include mainstream image formats such as JPG, BMP, PNG, GIF and other rare formats such as TIF and PCX.
Many users like to put photos on TV and reminisce with their families about the various pleasant experiences when taking photos. According to the author’s test, all JPG, BMP, PNG format pictures Tianmin D9 can be perfectly supported, and the switching process is smooth.
5. Blu-ray original playback test back to the top
Blu-ray original playback test
At present, there are only a few boxes that support Blu-ray original disk playback, and even if they support Blu-ray original disk playback, the experience is average, mainly reflected in details such as subtitle selection and audio track selection. Now the author uses the original Blu-ray disk with a capacity of 48G for playback testing.
After testing, D9 can play Blu-ray 3D original disc smoothly, and the playback settings are also quite rich, including subtitle selection, 3D-3D switching, audio track selection and other functions. Each deficiency is that 2 of the 3 players that come with the system cannot perform fast forward and rewind operations. The app that can perform rewind and fast forward is called XBMC, but it may be a little difficult for ordinary users of the British interface to get started, and I hope that the official website can solve this problem in the future.
6 Dual band WIFI/Bluetooth 4.0 back to the top
Built-in dual-band WIFI 2.4GHz/5GHz
At present, most of the boxes just use the more common 2.4GHz, Tianmin D9 built-in 2.4GHz/5GHz dual-band WIFI, 2.4GHz better penetration, 5GHz WiFi band anti-interference, and has higher bandwidth, faster transmission speed, so that HD video playback becomes fast and easy.
Built-in Bluetooth 4.0
Bluetooth 4.0 has the advantages of lower power consumption, faster response, longer acceptance distance, etc., the most commonly used is to use Bluetooth to link the box after playing the songs in the box, can also be linked with Bluetooth headsets, I believe there will be a good experience.
7 system running score/UI/summary back to the top
The system runs scores
Next is the running score test. We are using the Antutu software. AnTuTu Benchmark is a mobile phone and tablet rating software for iOS and Android devices. Introduction The new AnTuTu V4.0 version will take the lead in launching user experience test items to make the running score closer to the actual performance of the product.
The running score result is 37680, which is quite high compared to the box, if there is no accident, this is the box product with the highest running score performance at present. But the running score does not represent the user experience, as a reference, this running score to some extent indicates that this box will have higher game performance. Next time, I’ll test the D9’s game performance to see if running high-capacity games is playable.
Tmall on Tianmin’s official website indicates that this box uses Alibaba Cloud OS, but the product received by the author uses Tianmin’s own customized system, based on Android 4.4, there is no Wasu TV film and television content (but you can install a video APP), so the online video part will be hidden in this review. Looking at the system UI, there is still a big difference between aesthetics and Alibaba Cloud OS, which gives people a relatively general feeling. Fortunately, the smoothness of the system is good, but the sensitivity of the infrared remote control still needs to be improved, and the operation sometimes fails if the receiver of the fuselage is not aligned.
D9’s UI uses the still familiar three-column design, and the first page is recommended content, including games, TV, music, app usage, and file browsing.
The second page is film and television content, all content has been categorized, there are movies, anime, dramas, variety shows, music, etc., it needs to be indicated that these content are third-party content.
The third column is the system application, because of the use of Tianmin custom system, users can freely install the APP they want to use, in the installation, the use of Tianmin customized system products have no installation restrictions, but D9 equipped with Alibaba Cloud OS can not install software freely.
There are still a lot of small functions that come with the system, including garbage cleaning, self-start management, memory organization, etc., which are inconspicuous but very practical functions.
The author believes that the most practical is the shortcut key setting function, the buttons on the remote control can be customized to start the corresponding APP, save and exit after setting, and then press the corresponding number keys to open the corresponding APP, so that the user does not have to find the application in the application page, which greatly saves time.
Thanks to the powerful Rockchip RK3288 chip, the overall performance of Tianmin D9 is very strong, all formats of video can be perfectly supported, is the only product in the box that the author has reviewed so far can perfectly decode all video samples, there is no one. The pricing of Tianmin D9 is 499 yuan, which is the highest priced flagship product of Tianmin, and the overall performance of D9 is also worthy of the title of “flagship”. If you are an AV lover, Tianmin D9 is definitely worth a try!
