Hi Guys
I`m building an arcade penny pusher game and the mechanics of it is more or less done - I`ve just got to tidy it up. I`m now planning electronics.

Can someone please tell me what I should be looking into to have audio play at various points? I`m sure an Arduino is the right way to go - I`m thinking when coins are dispenced - an additional money sound. Music playing when money is inserted... that sort of thing.

So I`m happy with the arduino sensing of when to play - I just don`t know what components for the Arduino will allow me to actually PLAY the sounds - etc. I presume as an MP3 would be best but I`m open to options!
