Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DH1008 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of a comparable type and age to this projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Viewsonic PJD5550LWS (£476.78) which has better reviews.

There are a number of alternative data projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider including the W312 (£399.99), or the DH1009 (£429.99) both from Optoma.
