20 Band Audio Spectrum Analyzer

This is the final version of the spectrum analyzer, this is the version that will get shipped to buyers. The two boards can be connected either by cable or one on top of each-other trough pin headers. You need to specify the model you want on ordering. You can get the kit assembled or unassembled, for this there are two separate products in the shop(for assembly guide check the forum).

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.
