This weekend I decided to recycle this old 70’s transistor radio. Just stuffed a pi zero W with a Hifiberry miniamp running squeezelite inside and connected it to the original speaker.

Really quick and dirty but now I have nice new player for the Kitchen .



I was a bit worried if the small amp would be strong enough for the speaker, but it sounds very decent, and can certainly play loud enough.

Would be cool to be able to use the original controls (buttons/sliders) to control the player, but don’t really have the skills/time for that job atm
