Arduino or Raspberry Pi for project?

I need to make a device that can take input from three buttons, play a sound file for each press, and possible display feedback at same time (LCD).

Should I start with the Arduino or go with the Pi?

From blogs and forums out there, I can't seem to figure which is better to use.

Thanks for any tips. Sorry if this isn't the right place to ask...

Depends on what language you want to use... an Arduino can do this with a wave shield and an SPI or serial LCD, while a Pi already has the audio hardware in it, and you could get an LCD plate for it from Adafruit.... I'd use an arduino, but that's because Python and I aren't friends yet...

Arduino wins by a wide margin in my opinion. There are so many controller modules and shields and probably the largest support community.

Definitely Arduino for embedded control & breadboarding.

Raspberry Pi for Multimedia/DLNA (OpenELEC & XBMC.)
