I had been looking around for a suitable Upgrade to my Source (currently a Sansa Fuze 4GB + 16GB fed to a Mini^3)
and thought about buying an iPod Classis 5.5G, diyModding it, and upgrading the storage, but then a thought came to my mind.
Why not take a Raspberry Pi, attach a SSD1289 based 3.2" LCD to it, Install Arch (coz its customizable, and has only the required stuff preinstalled), design a player module, connect a USB DAC to it like the Objective DAC, and an AMP, like the O2 Amp....
Then i have the ability to play 24/96 audio. I know the setup is going to be heavy, bricky, but thinking about it, it allows the user to have complete control over the selection of the DAC and the AMP components of the system. Rather than buying a player to have 24/96 playing capability, u can have this and still its going to cost lesser than the players already available in the market.
So what do you guys think? Can this be a Project? Can people here design Cases for this kind of a setup?
People have already connected a SSD1289 screen to the Raspi here, with touchscreen module functional (will have to Recheck this touchscreen thing) at http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=33679
Chime in with suggestions guys
