The built in speakers are pretty decent (unlike many projectors) so I can hold off getting a surround sound for now
has a terrible 3w built in speaker which is fine if the device your using has no other audio output like Chromecast
or if it is something built in where it doesn't process the sound correctly
The projector does have a built in speaker
not heavy duty material
shortly before it was delivered I broke both my TV
I tough that it was defective
