The MP3 FM player module has no display, and is supplied with a remote. The player module has a SD slot and a USB input. The player has an LED which blinks when the player is working. The player is supplied without a case, without a 5 Vdc power supply, without power switch, and without input and output connectors requiring that you supply these items and assemble the module into a usable MP3 player. The unit is supplied with a battery for the remote. The MP3 player remembers the track being played, and the volume setting. A connection diagram is supplied.
If you are not handy in building electronics equipment, I would give this unit a pass. If you realize this module will require some assembly and installation, and are handy in building electronics equipment you will be rewarded with excellent MP3 player performance.
I installed MP3 Module in Radio Shack plastic Box (2 X 2.5 X 5.0). I used screw on panel as the base. I Added rubber feet (Waxman Super Sliders Bumpers ½ inch 0 74523 02153 8) to the box. I added 12V input connector (Sunkee DC Power Jack, Screw Nut DIY 180 Degree X00017GVIL) and color coded (white/red) RCA input jacks (Radio Shack Gold plated, mount with nut). I used a Radio Shack Universal power adapter (1.5-12V dc) (273-1662) that I happened to have on hand, set to 4 Volts output. I used the type M output tip set so that the center conductor was positive.
The MP3 player has 5 equalization settings plus no equalization. With no equalization the player response is flat within 1.6 dB from 17 Hz to 20 kHz into a 23kOhm load (excellent).Read more ›
The simplicity of the unit makes it nice for DIY'ers and the buttons on the front are easy to tap into. Add an Arduino or a Pic chip and you have a handy microcontroller driven MP3 player ready to plug into an amp with an IR controller backup.
Note that the sound output and power input are bare wire connections so you will have to solder (or crimp I guess) to use this unit.
Physically the unit is unimpressive but the functionality, flexibility and under $20 price make me give it four stars. Five would require better connectivity options for power and sound output.
My biggest frustration is navigating. I use it through a Lepei amp to have background music in my shop and classroom. I'd like to have a random button so it could jump around my USB drive like a radio of music I liked, Instead it goes through every file in order album by album. You can direct access songs by pressing in a 3 digit number, but figuring out the pattern for identifying specific songs is quite a chore if you have more than one album on your drive. Instead I use a script that renames all the files on a disc to a random string. Works, but I'm certain that one day I'll accidentally do it to my library instead of my USB. A simple display would be nice too, but nicer is usually the opposite of cheaper.

Great sounding, but squeaky plastic face, overall great sounding. Very good buttons: tac switches instead of cheap on-board dome switches.Published 18 months ago by Charles Sanders
