The NEC M402X has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other similar spec multimedia projectors that have been on the market for more than two years also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared this projector to all the other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think the NEC NP-M322X which has better reviews is also worth considering.
