Hi. If this topic has been covered a 1000 times please just point me in the right direction, this is not my speciality and I'm new to Arduino.
I need to build a sound player that can play back any of 10 pre-recorded sounds at the press of a remote button, but on bigger speakers with about 120W RMS. It will be 10 different bird sounds, each only about 30 seconds duration. So not massive storage needed and if I can do away with an SD card it would be good for durability. Its for an environmental project.
I assume Arduino would be sufficient, cheaper and more durable than Rasberry Pi? Will I need something like a relay to handle the bigger speakers, perhaps an external amp or not? Does anyone have any good ideas for a remote setup for Arduino please? I want to make sure that I buy the correct Arduino board to start experimenting with.
Thanks so much for any help or direction!
