Clock Radio #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Beautiful project update from AndyFelong.com via raspberry pi pod:

We had a really old alarm clock in our bedroom. Really old. The LED number segments, which were a nice dim red in color, had been dying at the rate of 1 segment a year and it was getting hard to read the time. My wife finally had enough of my “I’ll get a new one real soon” excuse and bought a new big, bright, blue LED clock to replace the old clock. It was blue … and *really* bright … even in its dim-mode 🙁 It had to go!

My converted 1942 Crosley Radio was collecting dust on my workbench. I had finally received a Raspberry Pi Zero and Zero4U USB hub to play with but was already lusting after the new R-Pi Zero with camera port. I recently upgraded the audio-output on my Mac from an old USB HiFiMan Express DAC to a Schiit Modi DAC. Hmmmmm, seemed like I had the ingredients to make a BIG clock “radio” with alarm(s) and great stereo audio?
