You could have the arduino control what is played from a card like this

Thanks for the tip!

That looks an interesting card, the one from AdaFruit also has the audio amplifier, volume control and speaker but maybe he needs to have a more powerful one.

Thanks! I don't know precisely how much power I do need...but I need to fit everything inside a cube 15cm x 15cm, and it needs to be heard :)

I've also found this shield, any opinion? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9715

Another little question, should I buy an Arduino UNO starter kit + one of those shields, or just arduino UNO + shield? (recall that I've never used this before..so I guess I should go with the starter kit).

thanks,
Alessandro

Well it says on the page:-

This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale.
This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious. Please refer to the description to see if a replacement part is available.


So I guess it is not an option.
I would go with the starter kit and do some tutorials to get yourself used to the whole system before delving in to your project.

You may also want to look into some type of Amplifier.

I don't have much experience here, but from what I've seen of Arduinos playing music, the volume maybe quite low.

I've used this one with the arduino and its fairly straight forward and worked like a charm.
