Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available that you might want to consider include a cheaper multimedia projector such as the Infocus IN3126[plb_1475113_price] or you might consider a higher scoring multimedia projector such as the NEC M311[plb_1475527_price].

There are a number of alternative multimedia projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might also want to consider including the Hitachi CP-CX300WN[plb_2172494_price].
