Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma DX346 has a built-in speaker(s), as do most of the other multimedia projectors of this spec and age.

Other multimedia projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper projectors such as the Benq TW526E.

We compared all the other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think the MW526 ($395.00), or the MS504 ($308.99) both from Benq is also worth considering.
