HOW TO – DIY open source Holga MP3 player

Joe writes –

“Hey Phil – I got the MAKE open source MP3 player kit and let me say I am impressed. I put it in an old Holga and its pretty rad. I am really impressed by the sound quality. On par with my ipod without a doubt. I am going to take it apart though. I’d like to make a case for it that looks like an old 1950s radio. Then use a BS2 plus PINK to control it via the web. And last use a tube amp for that 50s feel. That’s going to take a bit of time cause I have to order a tube amp kit.”Link.
