I’ve had this amp for about a year now and have not really used it that much. It has been sitting on my desk at work collecting dust. So I started thinking that I could get better use out of it by connecting my RaspberryPi and stream internet radio through it. Then I thought it would look better if I just took apart the speaker and shoved the Pi in, only exposing the necessary ports needed to make it work. I originally planned to have a RaspberryPi Model B run the entire setup, but with the way the SD card stuck out from the Pi and the way the power connector was positioned, it was just a little too big to fit inside the MyAmp case. I also needed room to connect the ethernet extender I was going to make and the audio plug.
