The Benq MX819ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other similar spec projectors that were released around the same time as this multimedia projector.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the Benq 720P; 2500 ANSI LUMENS; 5.94LBS; HDMI X2; C; S-V; COM; A; 10W SPKX1; AO; CONTROL, or the Acer S1283.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this data projector and we think the Optoma ML800 (£549.00) is also worth considering.
