Ook, so i’ve gone from ambitious to down right insane Because buying a stereo offers far to great value for money and practicality I decided it would be ultra cool (heh heh) to design my own…
I have a couple of questions regarding this:
what AVR to use? It needs to be networkable (it should then work as a pair of remote speakers)
Know of a high quality DAC? (2 channel, 24 bit 192Khz) - output will go to amps, how hard can it be?
IDE / SATA drive interface - is this possible, I need reasonbale data through put?
Should I use a colour screen or could I have a keyboard and an old-school terminal interface
Oh and what about MP3 decoders?
I would have put this elsewhere, but you guys are an oracle on micro controllers and as it AVR based it may turn into an arduino… I could add a USB port and FTDI chip and create a little boot loader too… Hmm… Maybe I will…
