So a few months ago my moms CD player sort of......died.
After a while of searching for a good CD player that wasn't a boom box or one that didn't have apple crap all over it I decided to build one.
Right now I have a asus socket 775 mobo with a pentium chip and some DDR3 1600mhz ram that I had lying around.
I am missing a few things. A case, a USB disk drive, smallllll screen, and some type of hard drive (preferably a CHEAP SSD). If you guys also know of a good dac and amp that I can use for speakers, that would be cool too.
Any type of info you guys have please do share. I am trying to make this as cheap as possible (since all it will be doing is playing audio CDs) but still have it be good quality and stable. The last thing I want is for my mom to ask how to trouble shoot a CD player........
And before you guys go and recommend me CD players, this build will also serve as an imminent replacement for the family computer which is pretty much on it's last leg.
Thanks in advance for any help!!!
