Multimedia

Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Optoma S316 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other comparable spec data projectors that have been around for around the same time as this multimedia projector also have a built-in speaker(s).

We compared all the other projectors with a built-in speaker(s) to this projector and we think a cheaper projector such as the Optoma DX325 or you might consider a higher scoring projector such as the Viewsonic PJD6350 are also worth considering.

There are a number of other projectors which also have a built-in speaker(s) which you might want to consider including the Infocus IN122A ($419).
