The MUJI wall-mounted cd player is a nice piece of minimalist Japanese design (it got added to the permanent collection of the museum of Modern Art in New York in 2005).

It has one problem though: the internal loudspeakers are of very bad quality and it's not possible to use it with externals speakers because of a missing audio jack. However it's very easy to add one. This instructable will show you how.

Step 1: What you will need

  • a female 3.5mm stereo audio jack with switch contacts (normally closed)
  • soldering iron and some wire
  • a mini drill or dremel
could you do this same sort of proccess with an audio left and right RCA plug so i can have it connect to my amp?
sure, or you could just use a 3.5mm -> RCA adaptor. I prefer the jack plug solution because it's small & not very intrusive.
note: you probably don't need to cut the ground cable. it should be enough to connect a wire from ground to the audio jack's ground pin in step 4
