Tutorial - Lessons from Rebuilding Illumitune |
about 3 years ago
If it was just the MIDI module that was broken, it could be replaced with a Sparkfun VS1053 breakout board ($24.95).
Apologies in advance for a critical comment.
Did you work out what was wrong with the original hardware? Surely the prime suspects for the fault are a dry solder joint or perhaps a failed power supply cap, which could be tracked down and fixed quickly and cheaply.
It looks like there is also rather a lot more that could go wrong with the new design than there was with the old… especially if the next person who opens it up to maintain it sees the RJ45 cables and assumes he can debug it by plugging one into an ethernet port.
No public wish lists :(
