Build a Wireless Audio Streamer for Around $100


Need a wireless audio streamer for the house but you don't want to shell out $200 or $300 dollars. Maybe you have the money but you're looking for a cool weekend project?

Popular Science's website has a cool "how-to" that shows you how to assemble an audio media streamer starting with an old PC that you have lying around the house.

Some of the things you'll need to get started:

  • Salvaged PC (must have serial RS232 port, two USB ports, and one stereo line out jack; or, build your own, like our $72 PC
  • Streamzap PC remote control (Amazon.com; $30.24)
  • TRENDnet 54Mbps wireless G USB adapter (Amazon.com; $15.99)
  • Serial-Enabled 20x4 LCD (SparkFun Electronics #LCD-00462; $32.95)
  • RS232 shifter board kit (SparkFun Electronics #PRT-00133; $6.95)
  • Hookup wire (RadioShack #278-1223; $5.99)

This project made be a tad advanced for some, but it definitely looks like a project that might be fun to try. We here at NetworkingAudioVideo will give it a shot and let you know how it turns out.
