I have yet to use any internal SS radio's speaker except for an occasional test
or possibly a portable set-up.
They may as well leave it out as far as I'm concerned. NONE of them come
anywhere close to the sound quality I get from simple outboard speakers.
(Note, this does NOT include the over-priced, cheap speaker in a metal box
often sold as a matching "accessory" by the big-three.)
Personally, I find the recovered audio from my K3s, feeding two little computer
speakers to be the best of any modern radio I have ever used.
That said, it's hard to beat the audio from an old boatanchor radio with
push-pull 6V6's driving a big 12" speaker cabinet.

Subject: Re: [Elecraft] K3 audio quality
In my case the issue was low frequency harmonics in the case/assembly causing
the audio to distort. Removing the speaker from the case resulted in very
excellent audio from the built in speaker. I re-installed it and use an
external speaker now (on the rare occasion I need/want external sound).
It's largely a non-issue as I was surprised to find I operate most often with
headphones so I can hear better.
