I want to be able to play MP3s on my personal MP3 player through
the X Type single CD sound system.

Is there any way of doing this?

There don't seem to be any inputs on the unit so I was thinking of
using a FM modulator to play the MP3s through the radio.

The problem with this is connecting the modulator to the aerial
connection on the back of the radio, as it is not the usual car
type of connection.

I have not been able to identify the type of connector used, does
anyone know?

I will then be able to modify a FM modulator to suit.

I don't want to use the type of modulator that just transmits to
air because of the poor sound and interference that I have
experienced with them in the past.

Thanks

Asolutely! It took me two long hard years to find them, but antenna
lead adaptor cables are available so that you can connect an FM
modulator. I'd been trying to get my XM Roady hard wired for two
years when I finally happened on to a post in one of the satellite
radio forums.

The parts are available from Crutchfield (crutchfield.com) and are
part numbers: 40-EU10 and 40-EU20. They are manufactured by an outfit
named "Metra". You will need both and they are $20 bucks each, plus
shipping.
