hifi ps1 with screen selector

Post by gazthon_01 » March 31st, 2021, 10:32 pm


I'm new in the forum and I want to turn my ps1 into a hifi audio player

I am looking for a way to see the name of the tracks of cd.

The idea is to get an arduino or some microcontroller to read the data and then pass it to a tft screen or similar.


Thanks in advance.

Best place to start is to write a cd player application.

You can then use the serial port of the playstation to interface to an Arduino that can control the playback and show the time/functions on tft
