I have two sets of the Radio Shack Optius speakers and I can tell you they are crap compared to the SP3 speakers. I have had Icom and Kenwood speakers and they are crap compared to the Elecraft SP3. I have 2 of the SP3 speakers, one in use and the other new in box. So you might want to listen to a SP3 to see for yourself. However, if you have a tin ear then speaker quality makes no difference.

I think all y’all * are crazeee to spend that much on a speaker.
Just look around your next hamfest for any of the little Radio Shack “Optimus” or “Minimus” bookshelf speakers.
I typically find them for about five bucks.
Even if the speaker itself is blown, good replacements are available (At Newark/MCM or Parts Express) for a couple bucks too.
They have a reasonably flat response, are metal or solid wooden cased, no cabinet resonances, small size and sound GREAT.

If you want a SP3, save yourself some money. I will sell mine, new in opened box for $190. No shipping cost, or sales tax. $190 to your door and I will take PayPal, or a personal check.
