Discussion about my Wifi Radio project at http://mightyohm.com/wifiradio/ or my WL-520gU talk at NOTACON.

I'm guessing that this hasn't happened? What sort of cost would there be to making such a thing?
I have my radio built now, I'll try to take some photos soon. I used an old surround sound amp with a remote for adjusting the volume, and the ASUS WL-520GU. I then built a custom box that holds the subwoofer, the circuit boards, the power wall warts (which I stripped out of their casing and hard wired to a plug) and the front left and right speakers. Still to do is add the LCD screen, and some connectors on the back for an AUX in and extra speaker outputs. The ultimate plan is to have this set up in the loungeroom, with speaker leads heading outside to an outdoor entertaining area, and being controlled from an Android MPD client.
So I'm quite interested in a PCB for the disply side of things, as this will be much easier to keep in the box and still be somewhat tidy
I am in the process of developing a PCB layout for this project. If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to share it here (including the .sch). Maybe if enough people are interested in a PCB we could order a batch together.
