MP3 player kit

Discussion in 'Hobby Electronics' started by Clifford Heath, Jul 23, 2007.

  1. My son (22yo) is asking what MP3 player kits are available in Australia.
    I've asked him for more details on what he has in mind (that isn't covered
    by commercial units), but I can say that he's a competent (degreed)
    programmer who also knows how to use a soldering iron (though he hasn't
    built many circuits), so something with available software source code
    and an open development platform would be excellent. More details when
    he replies to my email... meantime...

    Any suggestions?

    I built one of these in a rack box with a couple of power amps and a removable
    hard drive.

    Has been going well for several years now.

    Could get a
    board from sparkfun.com then control it with <insert favourite
    microcontroller>
    and interface to an sd card to load the music from.

    http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=7832

    Fairly easy with a pic or avr or <insert favourite micro>

    Not sure if Don resells any of the vs1002 boards
