How to turn Macintosh Plus into an ‘iPod Hi-Fi mini’

Someone’s found yet another use beyond aquarium for Apple’s classic Mac form.

Using two Macintosh Plus cases and some amps, speakers, and craftsmanship, “Arawak” constructed the “iPod Hi-Fi mini” speaker system.

More info here.

[Thanks to MacDailyNews Reader “Too Hot!” for the heads up.]


  1. But if you do this to a Mac Plus you won’t be able to play Submarine, a fantastic OS6X game. I miss this game dearly. Anyone know where I can get an OS6 emulator for Panther I really miss taking on a battleship group with a six inch deck gun and a fifty cal. machine gun.

  2. “This shit for “news” is causing physical pain, it bores me so much.”

    Thanks for the best laugh I’ve had all day!

    (Until I got to the spanking of Whack-A-MacDude on a previous thread.. 😀 )

  3. @ meatus – you’re addicted to this stuff. Get outside.

    @ Pennypacker – there’s plenty of different kinds of anchors. Anything that holds something else in place, usually by use of gravity, is an anchor. May have nothing to do with boats.

    I think that thing rocks!

  4. bikersrule: Look up “vMac” on VersionTracker. It’s a 680×0 Mac emulator for OS X. You need a ROM file to make it work, but I hear it’s pretty easy to find one if you Google around.

    (Yeah, I know it’s piracy, but come on. We’re talking ancient obsolete hardware. I can’t believe Apple really cares…)

  5. Doesn’t this void the warranty? I know what hi-fi is, but what’s an iPod? Lastly, how did this file I’m typing in get on my computer? It’s not on my floppy.

    Just kiddin’. I have a MacPlus and it still works great.
