    Hey everyone,

    So, I love my iPod Hi-Fi, but everyone knows that Apple should have built AirTunes into it. Connecting an AirPort Express all the time is just unwieldy, not to mention inelegant and unsightly.

    I want to mod my Hi-Fi to build in the necessary components of an AirPort Express to make this missing feature happen. I turn to you, Greater Apple Community, to help me. Where should I start? Neither of these gadgets even has an exposed screw, and I want everything to look seamless when I'm through. Further, I have no technical knowledge of how any of this works, and I can't find any teardown photos of either piece to give me an idea of if this is even feasible - I fear the Hi-Fi doesn't have much empty space.

    So, please help! If this works, think of what a favor we'll be doing the Mac Community.

    Let's get this mission started.

    My first thought would be to try and fit the airport express inside the battery compartment. IIRC the hifi takes 6 D battery which is a lot of room to play with.
