iPod Hifi (vinyl wrap?)

Hi Guys,

I've been after an iPod HiFi since they came out and finally picked up a bargain last minute on eBay.

The cones have slight damage but the overall condition is good - I've got a friend of a friend who runs a car workshop, audio upgrades, customs, vinyl wapping etc.

I'm thinking of taking it down to him and see if he can do anything with the cones and maybe get it wrapped in either matte black or RS orange (It's 'my colour' - my bike, leathers, helmet and the back of my phone all the same colour!)

What do you guys think of the system? Obviously some people won't like them but i've heard pretty good things. I know they are old now but I've still got my 5th gen iPod and it has an aux input. Opinions on wrapping it?

Got to wait for PayPal to release the funds from my newton sale before I can pay for the HiFi, I'll chuck some before and after pictures on to get some opinions.

Just a little follow up - the iPod HiFi arrived today, I've tried a cheap knock off adaptor to run my iPhone 5 through it but no luck.

I've ordered a bluetooth adaptor which plugs into the 30 pin and is A2DP or whatever its called!

I'm going to see my mate tonight about getting it wrapped.

Wow bluetooth to 30-pin?! I need that! Looks like the ultimate upgade for the cult device iPod Hifi is... Honestly, there is no better dock out there:-)
