forbiddenhex has written an article detailing how to turn a TP-LINK TL-MR3020 into an Audio player:

This time i flush the TL-MR3020 with Openwrt. After couple of usb packages and audio packages i just plug in the USB sound card (which was given by whoknowz – to the router.
When the USB sound card is detected from the linux, you can check by command dmesg. Then install the madplay or any player you prefer.
I installed madplay because it play audio streams and play local files.
For test i played the audio stream from atoll radio and it works great. Just ssh the router and pass this command wget -o – http://radioatoll.serverroom.us:7088/ | madplay –

  1. it’s still got that protective plastic crap on top. i don’t get that. ditch it and scuff the mother up a bit if you want to be taken seriously. maybe it’s just me…

  2. How is that $1 sound card doing? Is sound decent (for an internet radio)?
    I’m thinking about similar project and got criticised about the choice of such sound card.
