Product Details

MP3 USB Media Card Player Module with Remote Control

This module is designed to act as a DIY source to be used in conjunction with DIY power amplifiers. The minimized faceplate allows for installation in powered speakers, project boxes, automotive and marine applications... the only limit is your imagination.

This module requires +5 volts DC which is readily found on computers, devices, and power supplies with USB ports. It is recommended that you solder the wire leads from the power connector to a USB-B female connector (please see the Related Products section). This allows for the use of a USB-A to USB-B cable  for proper connection to an active USB port for power.  

A two-wire cable connector is supplied for power. Carefully connect the two-wire cable connector to the two-pin board connector aligning the placement tab with the socket notch. Identify the proper board connector by locating the +5V and GND labels on the underside of the module's circuit board. A drop or two of superglue is recommended to permanently hold the connector is place.

Drag-and-drop MP3 files (only the MP3 audio codec at 32-320 kbps is supported) from your computer onto your storage device (USB or SD Card) for playback. It is recommended that you place songs directly into the root directory of your storage device. SD capacity 32GB. Cutout requirement: 2-1/2" W x 1-1/4" H.

Note: The manufacturer that supplied this part has switched to a different control that no longer has the folder up/down options.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use it all the timeI built a box to put it in and built a 5v power supply inside. Works as advertised. The remote is a little small for my fat fingers but otherwise I'm pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 128gb USB ConfirmedI have purchased 2 of these. 1 was DOA, but the other works great. The setup I'm using is for automotive only. No noises or hiss that I can here. I used a Sandisk Cruzer 128gb stick. Works as normal with under 10sec delay from power on to music. -1 star for DOA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't let the price fool you, it is well worth it.Bought 2 for pending projects, but decided to set one up for the home stereo system just to see how well it sounded. While it is still waiting for an enclosure, I powered it with an old Motorola phone charger (5 volts at 800ma) after checking to make sure it was 5 volts- Open circuit it was 5.2 volts- which did not pose a problem with this- If you use one or other wall wart- measure the actual voltage as some wall warts are not regulated at all so their actual voltage in use can vary widely.One review mentioned a spot for a capacitor on the power supply input, I installed a 1000 microfarad cap, it sits above the board a little bit, but no issues with noise from supply or flashing memory sticks. This also played my Coby MP3 player just fine and others should work as well as long as they can be controlled via the USB. It had no problem with a 1Gig SD card and no problem with a 16 Gig SD card either. While you are not able to jump from one music folder to another, it will still play the folders in order. Best results are to keep the folders at the root directory level rather than nesting them. Dumping songs to the root directory will only allow you about 256 entries if you load them via a Windows computer initially.Even though limited to MP3 format, it will produce acceptable results with just about any variation of sampling rates- though lower sampling rates produce a lower output level (as they do in other devices).Noise floor is low, so music that is quiet, or has quiet segments, the noise floor is not heard at most listening levels.If you are going to add this to an automotive or other low voltage application, use a 7805 series "tabbed" voltage regulator.All in all, well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only one issue - EQI have made projects with three of these units and I like them a lot. However there is one issue users should be aware of -- the remote controls (at least mine) have a button labeled "CH-/EQ. As you might think, "EQ" is for "equalization". When this button gets pressed the sound quality changes, so the EQ function works. The problem is there is no way to tell what "setting" it is on; I want it to be on FLAT, but it's hard for me to be sure which one is the flattest. I believe there are 6 different EQ settings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great...or it did work great. I purchased two (by accident). Powered them with 18 volt laptop charger purchased from ebay. Dropped the volts with the 7805 regulator.Worked like a champ. Found all of the MP3 songs on my thumb drive, although they were in many folders with other audio format files on it. Then I got sloppy and allowed the power to the unit to touch the "exposed" 18 volt supply. Not surprisingly, the unit did not like that. (notice that I put Novice as my experience level)Anyone need a remote or the pigtails?

MP3 USB Media Card Player Module with Remote Control

I'm looking for a player that will play a single track once and then wait to be triggered again. (via the play button) I've tried others like this and they all either "repeat track" or "repeat all." Will this one work for me? TIA

Asked by: jaxx

Would this be considered a balanced output or can I configure it to a balanced output?  Can I wire up a 1/4" TRS jack and hook it straight into a power amplifier that is designed for live or PA use (Behringer EPQ304) or do I need to go through a DI box?

Asked by: Lukebass
According to the 'Pinout PDF' sheet, the Left and Right line level audio is referenced to a common GROUND and is more than likely the same GROUND as the +5v power supply ground. If you really need signal isolation from the power supply ground, run the unbalanced audio to a set of audio isolation transformers.

The USB input in the front, will it only accept input from thumb drives or can you take the signal from say my iPad or USB  output from any number of MP3 players.  I have a buddy who wants me to build him a shop radio via USB from his phone.

Asked by: Cowboyinthejungle
No, this will only play MP3 files from a flash drive.

How do you power up this device without remote?

Asked by: emedia4u2
Power on/off would have to be switched or disconnected at the 2 pin molex connector for ground and 5vdc
Answered by: TomI

I don't understand how to have both devices such as this and an amplifier share a power supply if one is 120vac and another is 5 vdc? Can someone describe in detail what parts I need and how to wire or a link online? This would help me greatly thanks.

Asked by: Steverondeau
You can use a 7805 voltage regulator to bring the voltage down to 5vdc. Please review the video online for further installation and wiring instructions.

Does the unit require line of sight to the remote for the remote to operate, or can the faceplate be hidden?

Asked by: tinkertailor
This unit uses IR remote control, so line of site is required.
