Pro Stage Pianos don’t Come with Speakers
Some time back, there was a trend where most high-end digital pianos used to come without built-in speakers. the assumption was that because most of them run their digital pianos through amps/PA, they need not have built-in speakers. It was also because the manufacturers wanted to keep the weight of their pianos low.
High-end stage pianos are usually sturdy and heavy (some are almost built like a tank); they are built like that so that they are better suited for gigging. And that is why most manufacturers look for areas where they could cut the weight, and the speakers is one area where they though they could cut some weight.
