A Streaming Internet Radio from Top 10 Raspberry Pi Projects for Beginners

A Streaming Internet Radio 1 100x100

Make your very own touchscreen-controller Pi Radio Player! With an ever increasing number of internet radio stations available this project combines the versatility of the Raspberry Pi and the PiTFT 2.8" touchscreen TFTdisplay. A custom display interface lets you control volume, station, and see what's currently playing.


Got my Retropie finished after upgrading to the Pi 3, but I need to figure out what to do with the Pi 1. Was thinking of making a projector, but the only guides involved still cost like, $60 or more. Maybe I’ll do the VPN, though...

Another cool project is a Lossless audio player, (this is similar to the web radio player). You can easily buy a DAC for the Pi, (I purchased mine from iQaudIO with a case), and install something called Volumio. This is a native FLAC (and most everthing else), player that with the DAC plays at a really nice quality for the price, it’ll sit on a network/play via internal storage or USB and has a Spotify plug in and also web radio.

I will go through the links to learn more, but there are many so I would like to ask upfront if any of these are true learning projects or just ones that give you all the pieces (hardware and software) that you just put together? What I am looking for are projects that actually help learn hardware programming (with an emphasis on I/O controller programming, I guess) as well as perhaps some electrical engineering.
