Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DU400 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other projectors of this age and spec.

We compared this projector to all the other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) and we think a cheaper multimedia projector such as the DH913 ($1,099.99), and the DX831 ($969.70) both from Vivitek or you might consider a better rated multimedia projector such as the Benq W2000 ($1,243.47) are also worth considering.
