Maybe some of you have seen this Compjoetania TNG project at the Tilburg2000. There, someone showed a betatype of a hardwaredevice which enables the possibility to play MP3-files on the MSX....

Since 2000, I haven't heard anything anymore on the subject.

Does anyone of you have more info on the possibilities that this project will become available to a larger audience?

it was a nice idea but should not become pub. Why? The people who're (maybe) going to develop the new MSX just have to add a very powerful CPU and there will be no need to a hardware mp3 device at all. Besides, what many cool other stuff can you do with CPU power that you cannot do with a mp3 device?

I agree that on a new MSX compatible system there will probably be no need for an external MP3-decoder, but for the existing MSX computers it would definitely be a very nice add-on.

Oi!

All I know is that there`d be at least 3 orders from Norway for that thingie!

I mailed him, and he said he might produce if enough was interested.

Cheers!

Too bad Jon de Schrijder thinks of his MP3 hardware as a 'private project'. Novatec was working on something similar as well. Maybe it's time someone actually created a version for users? Smile

Well, no more reactions on this thread, so erhm...Probably we'll have to wait a loooong time before this comes available for the CURRENT oO MSX systems...

Jon should make an mp3 player as an option in the Sunrise IDE interface, like RS232+IDE. That way he might cut down the usage even more on the MSX CPU when playing MP3`s from HD/CD.

IMO its a lame idea anyway. Adding CPU power is sufficient and integrating it in the IDE would prevent me from buying it! I play mp3 with my MPMAN or PC and integrating it in the IDE means extra pay!!

And it (probably) would not just be so easy to add JUST a random CPU that can power up the Z80.

Well erhm....I already have enough IDE interfaces, so I also rather would see a stand-alone MP3 device. I REALLY do hope it will be available for the current MSX systems. It would be a great enhancement and just very cool.
