Crosley Plays it All


We dig the retro look of electronics from Crosley and the fact that we can play music on it that we never managed to convert. For example, the Crosley Rochester Entertainment Center comes with a 3-speed turntable, programmable CD player, side mounted cassette deck and AM/FM radio. Housed in wood, it also has an external antenna and full range stereo speakers.

Convert Your Router to a WiFi Radio


Jeff Keyzer took an Asus WL-520gU Wireless Router and turned it into a DIY WiFi Radio. He removed the USB connector and wired it directly to simplify things. The cabinet was built from scratch by one of his neighbors. Excluding the case, it only cost him $147.09. Check out his other materials and instructions if you would like to duplicate his efforts. Nice job, Jeff.
