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.

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

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.
