Summary: l read the reviews and knew I would not be happy with the built in speaker. No problem I have a couple of different good surrond sound systems I was not using. i soon found that all of the plugs on tbe projector seemed to be for input. None of them for output. Sure that I was doing it wrong, I went the FAQ section of Epson's website andfound this jewel: Q. Can I hook up external speakers. A. NO, BUT SURELY YOUR DVD PLAYER HAS AN EXTERNAL AUDIO JACK!
