Did anyone go to the YouTube link to see the unit in operation? Any wonder why the inbuilt speaker sounds weak according to the seller. Still, I suppose the inbuilt sound effects generator adds extra fun to the whole SW listening experience. I must say that I did grunt rather loudly (as my shaken two cats would attest) when I saw the mode switch on SSB!

Why is the volume of the internal speaker so low?

Angelo, the internal speaker is probably low because the final or pre-amp tubes are weak.

It really needs some work!
New caps, probably some resistors out of tolerance, and a few new tubes, an alignment wouldn't hurt either!
Looks nice for it's age, however if I wanted to spend $4.5k on a radio, this isn't the one.
