Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Hitachi CP-CX251N has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of this spec and age also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth considering one of the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including cheaper projectors such as the CP-EW301N (£450), or the CP-EX301N (£432.58) both from Hitachi.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this multimedia projector and we think the Hitachi CP-EX401 (£704.47) is also worth considering.
