Wav files can be, and frequently are, mono. The Adafruit Wav shield only has mono output, but that has nothing to do with the input files.

Just read that back. It should have said 'Wav files can be, and frequently are, stereo.' Sorry.

Thats good news

You know there are cheaper shields that can play true 16bit strero and decode mp3s from 13 dollars with free shipping check out this:

or here is a slightly nice one with better header pins for 14.50 total

I would recommend this over the adafruit shield any day.

Its true that they are cheaper but those aren't shields.  Those are development boards for the codec.  Kind of like how the arduino is a development board for the atmega328p

Meh, I've already deconstructed sparkfuns mp3 shield. 
I'll just make my own.
