Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma X501 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other multimedia projectors of a comparable spec and age to this projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the EH415e (£1,112.81), or the EH415ST (£1,041.87) both from Optoma and both of which are cheaper; or the Optoma EH415 (£1,199) which has better reviews.
