Has a Built-In Speaker(s)

The Sony VPL-DX142 has a built-in speaker(s). Most of the other projectors of a similar age and spec to the VPL-DX142 also have a built-in speaker(s).

There are a number of other data projectors with a built-in speaker(s) currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Sony VPL-DW127[plb_2512334_price], or the NEC VE281[plb_1473677_price].
