Internet radio speaker, is it possible?
Ok so ive been really wanting to build my own internet radio, that includes DAB, bluetooth and alarms, just like the ones you can buy online. The reason is, the ones you can buy are crappy. I got one as a present last christmas, a ‘majority’ made one. It sounded great, but stopped working after 3 weeks! So i replaced it with an ocean digital one. The stations it gets and the system it uses are great, but it sounds awful. Not much bass and its very bright on trebble even using the built in equaliser. So ive looked around to try to find a media unit i can buy that i can put in a box, with proper drivers and get it to sound great too. Problem is, i cant find these radio units anywhere. Im having to consider buying a small cheaper radio, and taking out the media unit and adding that to my own build, but even the cheapest ready made radio is over £50. Im hoping someone can help me find the unit on its own that i can use to make this project. If anyone is unsure what i mean by an internet radio i can post pics and specs of one from online.
Also, why cany i find any DAB only parts either? Does nobody make there own speakers that use DAB instead if the usual bluetooth ones? Bluetooth is good, but sometimes i just wanna turn on the speaker and hear a local radio station without having to use my phone lol
