I'm probably stating the obvious here, but it sounds like the issue is the speaker you're using, not the NUC. Skull Canyon has excellent audio output, but the quality of the speaker will determine how much of that you hear. There's no "best" speaker to use with the NUC, any more than there's a particular speaker to use with any computer. I've used numerous speakers with my NUCs, both wired and bluetooth, and there's a huge range of sound quality out there. As you point out, with the bluetooth speaker you're only getting mono output, so it's not going to sound as good as stereo headphones. Looking at it from the link you include, it looks like a very basic, inexpensive speaker. In this case, you get what you pay for. I know it's hard to know what a speaker will sound like when you're buying online, but you can't expect much for that price. I'd suggest heading to a store that sells speakers to listen to a few (possibly using your phone as the audio source) to see what works for you.
The short answer is, it's not the NUC, it's the speaker.
jasonNUC thanks for the answers.
I've had some that sound pretty close to a wired connection
Which bluetooth speakers are they that you have had that sound close to a a wired connection? Could you please recommend?

I am also using an Asus VE278Q via HDMI and Display port and I get good audio from the monitor speakers.
I just need to make sure the HDMI sound is enabled through the monitor menu (configuration) and I select proper playback device
