Subject: YAMPP was: RE: Archos build quality......
From: for_spam_at_gmx.de
Date: 2003-05-20


hello,
i think the site with the most advanced "open hardware" mp3-player "yampp"
at
http://www.myplace.nu/mp3/index2.htm will give some useful information or
inspiration.
does anybody know a better one?

regards
roland

ps:
mhhh - porting rockbox on a yamp? not an easy task I think......
