Wave Shield for Arduino

hello,

i'm looking to purchase a Wave Shield for Arduino. i have some size limitations and so far the smallest board i've come across has been: https://www.adafruit.com/products/94

if anyone has suggestions for smaller audio shields i would greatly appreciate it.

thanks!

Try some of these http://www.mdfly.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&zenid=7dad81285f4f675cb6e99b9f934efae9&keyword=mp3 or http://www.gravitech.us/mp3pladforar.html

Try the "audio" section. They can tell you about tiny little modules that cost a quarter of that, require no "bulky library" and can even play mp3 files.

Shield’s are at fixed sizes (Uno or Mega footprints typically). If you want smaller, you can either use a third parties breakout board or The teensy audio board which can stack (same size 1.4" x 0.7") on the Teensy 3.x You then have the advantage of having a powerful ARM (Due level processing power) processesor that you can program in the arduino environment for about $35 total (audio shield and the Teensy 3.1 ARM board). In my mind it is a great value!

Compared to $6 for this?

fungus, this will be my last time responding to you since you are about to go on my ignore list; however, I find your sarcastic and unhelpful responses compounded with your frequent misinformation disturbing to say the least. You seem the prototypical troll.

$35 for an ARM development board with a audio shield capable of doing far more than playing MP3' all built with a level of quality unlikely to be found in your preference for cheap chinese designs and knockoffs. So yes, even compared to your 'bargain' I find it a great value.

Dealing with audio files and playing them are only a small part of the equation. The basic 328 level Arduino simply doesn't have the resources to do much more than make toys. An ARM chip has the memory and speed to actually to quality work that is beyond the reach of an ATMEGA328 or 32u4.

Now that I am finished you can start your ranting and sarcasm.
