It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including a cheaper projector such as the Sony VPL-SW620C (£1,036.20) or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the NEC UM330Xi (£957.58).

Alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) that you might want to consider include the Sony VPL-SW630C (£1,066.99).
