The 7300 is a nice rig but I wish Icom spent more time and effort giving it better audio like the FT-891, and improving the receiver. The 891 is a bit fussy with headphones, I use high impedance headphones and it makes a big difference. The built in speaker isn't the best but it absolutely shines with headphones and makes a great SWL Receiver too. I got the panadapter for the 7300 and connected it to the Airspy HF+ and it improved the audio but it's still not as good as the FT-891, whatever Yaesu did here it really does sound great via headphones. But the waterfall on the large screen makes a massive difference to the usability of the 7300 and the ability to see a gap on a busy band, highlight it and it tells you the frequency so you can tell your friends to QSY to that which you can't do on the 7300 screen and it's too small anyway. I wish Icom and others would do what Kenwood did with the 590SG and not bother with a tiny useless screen and concentrate more on the receiver with proper buttons and offer a built in panadapter for those who want SDR, I think this is a really great way to do it. I've used the 590SG at a friends QTH and it's leaps and bounds better than the 7300, much nicer radio to operate too. Icom compromised too much on the 7300 receiver and the Audio, I was going to sell it but ended up getting the Acom 1000 and then discovered the 7300 overshoot issue, that 7300 really does bug me now I have to say and I bet the audio on the 705 is just as bad as on the 7300. But I wouldn't spend that money, you could get a FT-891 100 watt + Chameleon MPAS 2.0 with CAP HAT which is a great antenna and probably have money left over for a EFHW 49:1 or build one for NVIS.
