Hard-disk Based MP3 Player With USB 2.0 capability

If you’re looking for a build-it-yourself, standalone, USB harddrive based MP3 player, this may be of interest to you. Originally conceived as a replacement for a CD player, this unit sits on the shelf next to your stereo and connects via standard RCA line-out audio connectors. Features of the player include:

  • Large, back-lit LCD display
  • IR remote-control receiver port
  • USB 2.0 connection for fast song transfers
  • Functions as a USB harddisk
  • 24-bit stereo audio out
  • Support for fixed & variable bitrate MP3 files to 320 kbps
  • Supports harddisks up to 137 GB

This is an open-source project. Full hardware schematics and software source code are freely available on the project site.

Wireless Interactive Media Player (WIMP) and two speakers

WIMP is a project developed by 5 students as the 4th year project and supervised by Professor Trevor W. Pearce of the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University. But, what the heck is WIMP ? As the title says its a wireless interactive media player, basically a MP3 stereo system with a wireless link to a PC. Currently the students are still working on the project, but I can see some serious applications, for this system in the future, so good luck guys in finishing the project and scoring nice grades.
