Make your own MP3 Player Jukebox with Arduino

Although there’s a plethora of convenient ways to listen to .mp3 music files, making your own player is educational, satisfying and fun. Enthusiast Jose Daniel Herrera has done just that with his version, based around an Arduino, memory card reader, the popular VS100x-series mp3 decoder IC with a small amplifer and so on. After assembling the project into a small cabinet the results are quite professional. The outstanding part is the user interface, which takes good advantage of a rotary encoder and some clever coding to create a very easy menu system, such as shown in the following video:

An interesting, Internet-connected version of the mp3 player could be made with our Freetonics EtherTen

Apart from being fully Arduino Uno-compatible, it has onboard Ethernet, microSD socket, full USB connection (no pesky FTDI cables needed) and supports optional Power-over-Ethernet. For more information and to order – click here!
