Hi all,
I'm interested in building a simple stereo. I'm not an audiophile and would probably just buy a Tivoli Model One except I like woodworking and want to make my own box, I don't want a radio, and I'd eventually like to add bluetooth or wifi streaming (I'm also messing around with a raspberry pi).

I've read around this and other forums a bit and I feel like most advice is for people who are more interested in playing with audio quality and / or electronics than I am. So my question to you all is: is there a simple kit I can buy that has effectively everything but the box, and I just need to assemble it? I think that would be a good starting point for me, and I can get more complicated later. Or I'm open to any advice you all have.

Thank you!

Peter

PS the speaker I'm trying to mimic is here: http://www.tivoliaudio.com/products/tab ... ilver.html

Hi Peter - welcome to the forum. Your quest is best asked in the Radio forum.

Cheers

Hi, I had one of the radios. Surprisingly nice. Check out Parts Express on the web for kits. Also google Velleman for kits. There are really lots of sources.....Jameco, Jaycar, QKits, ....

Good Listening
Bruce
