    This is a great Instructable, but you need to add a main image of the final project to the intro step. Please do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks!

    Anytime! I hope to be putting more stuff up soon!

    or you could pick up a male-male 1/8" audio jack and a 1/8" to 1/4" converter from radioshack for about 5 bucks and not lose 90% of your sound quality.... guh
