This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: BOB-10608

Replacement: BOB-10608. The new revision fixes the issue noted below. This page is for reference only.
Description: The VS1033D-L is a great MP3 decoder, and with this breakout board, it's easy to drop it into any project. The VS1033 is capable of decoding MP3/AAC/WMA/MIDI audio and encoding IMA ADPCM. Can drive 30 Ohm headphones with no additional power supply.
Note: We discovered an obscure issue with these boards. The TEST pin needs to be tied in to IOVDD or else some erratic behavior in certain circumstances. For our remaining stock, we tied these pins together with a jumper wire, as seen in the pictures. Further revisions will fix this issue more permanently.
