        An mp2x00 would be fine for this. 150 10 second sound files would
take up between 3MB (low-res) and 7.5MB (hi-res) of space. By itself the mp
records with the internal mic and plays back with the internal speaker. The
sound quality isn't stupendous, but it is pretty good, even at the lowest
resolution (2K/sec). It isn't terribly loud, though. If you build one of the
sound line-out modules, you can run it through a stereo and make it really
loud, though... ;-)
