The MW821ST has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other 13000:1 contrast ratio projectors that have been around for a similar time to this projector.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available including the Benq MX768 ($1,387.92) which has better reviews; or the MX822ST ($1,095.00), or the MW843 ($1,198.99) both from Benq which is cheaper.
