Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Acer P1163 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 17000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a comparable time to this data projector.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to consider include because of its better review score, the Acer H5380 ($442.21).

We think you might also be interested in alternative projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) including the P1173, or the X1383 both from Acer.
