MP3 Hardware Project Page
The ELMP project is the creation of a stand-alone MP3 player for a home stereo
system. The hardware design is pretty much complete and the software is
coming along quite nicely also. All software and all information needed to
build the hardware will be freely available on this website as soon as the
prototype is finished, and anyone with moderate electronics skills should
be able to construct their own E.L.M.P compatible player.
- Music Player
The objective of this project is to develop a device for an already
available stereo system, which can play compressed Mpeg3 music files, and
normal audio CD's.

This mp3 player kit consists of a 586cyrix on a 486pci mb with 16meg of
ram, a cd, case, power supply, led read out, sound card,
and runs a DOS 5 (MPXPlay) mp3 player. It can be purchased as a kit
from Germany for 79 Deutsch Marks.
The XIMP is an external user interface for MP3 and other players. It has
16 (max. 20) keys and an alphanumeric or graphical LC-Display. It comes
in a version for parallel or serial port. You can use it to build a
standalone MP3-Player out of an old (Pentium) Mainboard with a harddisk
and/or CD-ROM. XIMPlay is the player software for XIMP.
Not sure what all is contain in This Swedish mp3 player kit. Its another
pc based player kit with all the details. Couldn't make heads or tails
of the website other than it runs Xaudio under RedHat with a infrared
remote. I don't think it is completed or available yet - just
a project page with plans.
