I accidentaly posted about this problem in a thread marked RESOLVED and I am hoping that is why I haven't been able to get this issue resolved yet.
The new audio player is great. If you have MP3 files hosted elsewhere, it works like a charm.
I have .wav files. The paid upgrade allows for me to use wav files instead of mp3 files. I am very happy about being able to use wav files. It saves me many steps. I paid right away.
I have two problems with this:
1. When I upload a .wav file to WP and leave it formatted as WP uploads it (live link) it will only play the first section of the clip. I have tried many different clips and this happens on all of them.
2. When it plays this first few seconds of the clip, it leaves my blog and goes to my media player. (not what I am looking for)
In an attempt to figure out what is causing this problem, I just tried uploading a mp3 file and had the same result.
Now, if I upload an mp3 to WP and I edit the upload to be in the new audio player format [ audio http://www.yourfilename.mp3%5D, it does work properly. However, if I do the same with a .wav file, it gets stuck in buffering forever.
I posted all three of these situations in one entry on my blog just now. The code for the uploaded and converted to new audio player format entries is exactly the same aside from the extension (.mp3 or .wav).
I contacted support over a week ago and haven't heard back. Perhaps their response hit my trash folder as spam. Does anyone have the support email address so that I can do a search?

Thanks for any insight you can offer.
