Bob Murphy shared this project on last week’s Adafruit Show & Tell

Day & Night Sampler – a raspberry pi mpd mini boombox
.

This project had its origin a couple of years ago. I received a nice tin box with a plastic window on the front. The window just screamed out for a special display project of some kind. The box had “Day and Night Sampler” (D&NS) embossed on the front. Thus, the name.

I decided this would be a good box to hold a small prototype of a boombox that I wanted to build, complete with Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD), a super-nice glowy character display. You could use a character LCD or OLED display instead of the VFD, but you’ll have to figure out how to adapt the python scripts for your particular display.

Features:

  • VFD character display 20 chars x 2 lines
  • Raspberry Pi attached to small amp through USB Sound card
  • IR Remote Control: Volume +/-, Playlist up/down/change, etc.
  • Internet WiFi Streaming of stations or play from stored playlists
  • View Now Playing Song Info, Date/Time, or Weather
