Has a Built-In Speaker

The Optoma DS311 has a built-in speaker, as do most of the other multimedia projectors that have been available for a comparable time to the DS311.

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker to this projector and we think the MX661, and the MS619 both from Benq which has better reviews is also worth considering.
