So nothing new from me at the moment due to life the universe and everything…
So since i have had a big box full of DFRobot modules i thought i better try some so here is a quick and dirty review of the DFRobot music module.
It uses a simple serial interface at 19,200 and you send it simple commands and away it goes, just add your tasteful music collection to the micro sdcard on the backside of the module.
music.WriteLine("\\:v 255"); // Volume at 255 music.WriteLine("\\:n"); // Play the next file music.WriteLine("\\:u"); // Previous file
It packs 3W per channel and hooked up to cheap and cheerful PC speakers it does a very good job in my (humble) opinion.
Edit - the speakers are NOT powered, the module is driving them.
