Pi Outdoor Music Player Update

Finally completed the V1 Pi Outdoor Music Player. This is an old power tool case modified to mount/contain:

  • Speakers mounted on the top/face.
  • A 3Watt 5Volt stereo audio amp.
  • A 20,000mAh portable battery pack.
  • A Raspberry Pi B+ with a Wifi dongle, running mpd and ympd.

Sound is loud enough for a family BBQ and decent quality. The stereo amp has a volume control to allow adjustment. The wifi dongle (and ympd) allow the music and playlists to be controlled via a phone or tablet.
