We take on the Radio Music Module by Music Thing Modular in this latest build.  While this little module seems like a quick and easy module, there are some tidbits you definitely want to pay attention to when building it.  Its multi-PCB and aluminum panel contain cause some headaches to some due to the snug panel fit and close soldering points.  

The Radio Music Module houses a Teensy module which allows you to program and flash the firmware on the module itself.  This can be useful if you would like to swap out firmware and give the module a facelift with the Chord Organ firmware if so desired. 

Please Note:  You will need to purchase a MicroSD card and a Micro-B cable to setup this module.  I would suggest buy genuine SanDisk or Kingston brand MicroSD cards (32GB maximum) on Amazon or elsewhere.  32GB cards will give you approx. 108 hours of lossless audio in 16bit 44.1khz. The total file limit per card is 1200 files.
