Why do I see Output Sound via Acer SB220Q Monitor is Audio Output Options?
Most people get confused after clicking the small little Speaker Icon in their windows control section after seeing an audio output option.
This option does come for all versions of Acer monitors, but you won’t be able to hear any sounds from your SB220Q monitor.
The reason for missing sounds is the missing speaker hardware which does not come in the SB220Q model, but other Acer monitors have. That’s why your windows still indicate an Audio Output option from your monitor.
So, as per Acer guidelines and specifications, an SB220Q does not have a built-in speaker.
