    Before I start to build something of my own, I was wondering if anyone was familiar with a device that I could use to store some small music files, primarily NES theme music, that could be wired to be played with specfic button presses.

    It looks like it would work but I was hoping to find something that would be similar to one of those sound effects key chains but with a higher number of buttons.

    Try Googling portable soundboard.

    Or you could make your own with a microcontroller. I would go for one with a DAC - 10 bits at least, preferably 12. You can use an SD or Micro SD card for the audio, but you'll need code to interpret the file system.

    Edit: You can probably find everything you need on a platform such as Arduino or Raspberry Pi. Just add amplifier.

    You may be looking for something like this module?
    This module can be controlled via serial interface or by pushbuttons (5 keys for 5 different sounds).
